Hypotecni Banka - Liquidity & Capitalisation

Banking | Czech Republic | April 26, 2014
Excel Sheet

Hypoteční Banka is the Czech Republic's largest mortgage lender with a share of over 25%. Despite being a 100% subsidiary of ČSOB, Hypoteční has kept its distinctive brand name and relatively high level of independence.

The Bank possesses all the right ingredients for success; it is exposed to the fastest-growing area of banking, mortgage lending (its loan book has doubled over the last five years), it is extremely cost-efficient, with costs accounting for less than 16% of revenues, its asset quality remains under good control (with non-performing loans at 3.8% of the total at the end of 2012) and its interest margins are still good (above 200 bp) in spite of the declining interest rates.

When adjusted for hefty overcapitalisation, Hypoteční Banka’s ROE jumps to a more realistic 20-30%, one of the highest figures in the Czech banking sector
