Preliminary information of VP Bank Group: Stable result in a challenging market environment, continued net new money growth, lower group net income

Reading time: 2 Min
For the 2020 financial year, VP Bank expects a stable result in line with the development of the market environment and continued net new money growth. As a result of the value adjustment on an individual position in the credit portfolio communicated in the spring of 2020, a reduced consolidated group net income of approximately CHF 41.6 million is to be expected compared to the previous year.

Taking into account challenging market conditions surrounding the Corona pandemic, a persistently low interest rate environment and currency shifts, VP Bank Group recorded a stable result for the 2020 financial year. Growth in new money was also positive in the second half of the year and reached a reasonable level of about CHF 1.4 billion for the year as a whole.

The reduction in the consolidated group net income is mainly due to the value adjustment on an individual position in the loan portfolio, which was communicated in spring 2020.

Against this backdrop, VP Bank Group is expecting group net income for the 2020 financial year to be lower than in the previous year at around CHF 41.6 million. The tax reassessments of simplifications of the Group structure carried out in the past led to tax expenses in the amount of approximately CHF 5.8 million, which are charged to equity on an accrual basis.

VP Bank Group has a very healthy equity base and a comfortable liquidity situation. This means VP Bank is well-prepared as it enters the new strategy cycle.
