Lima, Peru, May 03rd, 2018 – Credicorp (NYSE: BAP) announced its unaudited results for the first quarter of 2018. These results are consolidated according to IFRS in Soles.

 

First Quarter Results 2018

 

In 1Q18, Credicorp reported net income of S/ 1,037.8 million, which translated into a ROAE and ROAA of 19.3% and 2.4%, respectively. This level of net income was -2.4% below that reported in 4Q17, and 16.7% above the figure registered in 1Q17.

 

The results in 1Q18 reveal:

 

•A slight recovery in average-daily loan balances that expanded 2.8% QoQ and 7% YoY, primarily due to growth in Wholesale Banking, Consumer, Mibanco and Mortgage segments. These growth rates are still low but reflect a gradual recovery in loan growth considering the evolution posted throughout 2017.

 

•Net interest income (NII) contracted -0.8% QoQ. This was mainly related to the fact that loan growth in average daily balances was mainly driven by growth in segments with low margins. QoQ interest income contracted, which was partly attenuated by a contraction in interest expenses. In the YoY analysis, NII grew 1.8% due to an increase of 2.3% in interest income on loans, which offset the expansion of 2.7% in interest expenses. In this context, NIM contracted -11 bps QoQ and -28 bps YoY.

 

•Cost of risk (CofR) posted a 28 bps QoQ and 84 bps YoY reduction in 1Q18 to situate at 1.48%. This reduction was due to the improvement in the risk-quality achieved in SMEs, Mibanco and Consumer financing business segments in the last three years. The improvement in the risk quality of the loan portfolio was captured by IFRS9 methodology to calculate provisions for loan losses starting on 1Q18. Furthermore, the sale of non-performing loans under judiciary process allowed us to reduce IOLs and NPLs ratios, while increased the coverage ratios.

 

• The improvement in the cost of risk led risk-adjusted NIM to increase +8 bps QoQ and +23 bps YoY.

 

• Non-financial income contracted -14.3% QoQ due to seasonality effect that characterized each 1Q and the impact of non-recurring income in 4Q1. It is important to note that in 4Q17, fee income and net gains on foreign exchange transactions reported the highest quarterly levels of the 2017, posting a recovery after quarters of relatively negative results. The YoY analysis reveals an improvement in Fee income.

 

• The insurance underwriting result fell -4.5% QoQ and -5.2% YoY due to an increase in net claims and acquisition cost, mainly attributable to P&C business. The latter was attenuated by the increase QoQ and YoY in net earned premiums of Life Insurance business.

 

•The efficiency ratio decreased 250 bps QoQ due to a reduction in operating expenses, in line with the seasonality effect that is present every 1Q. The YoY analysis reveals an increase of 100 bps, which reflects a scenario in which operating income expanded at a lower rate than that at which operating expenses did. This was primarily attributable to YoY growth in Employees’ Salaries and Benefits, which was in line with an increase in the number of employees.

* This account or ratio has been modified retroactively, as a result of the improvement in the presentation of Credicorp's accounting accounts. This improvement allowed to

show the net gain in derivatives and the result by difference in exchange.

(1) The funding costs differs from previously reported due to a methodology change in the denominator, which no longer includes the following accounts: acceptances outstanding, reserves for property and casualty claims, reserve for unearned premiums, reinsurance payable and other liabilities.

(2) Internal overdue loans: includes overdue loans and loans under legal collection, according to our internal policy for overdue loans. Internal Overdue Ratio: Internal Overdue Loans / Total Loans.

(3) Non-performing loans (NPL): Internal overdue loans + Refinanced loans. NPL ratio: NPLs / Total loans.

(4) Cost of risk: Annualized provision for loan losses / Total loans.

(5) Efficiency ratio = [Total Expenses + Acquisition Cost - Other expenses] / [Net Interest Income + Fee Income + Net Gain on Foreign Exchange Transactions + Net Gain from Subsidiaries + Net Premiums Earned].

(6) Combined ratio= (Net claims / Net earned premiums) + [(Acquisition cost + Operating expenses) / Net earned premiums]. Does not include Life insurance business.

(7) Considers Grupo Pacifico's figures before eliminations for consolidation to Credicorp.

(8) All Capital ratios are for BCP Stand-alone and based on Peru GAAP.

(9) Regulatory Capital / Risk-weighted assets (legal minimum = 10% since July 2011).

(10) Tier 1 = Capital + Legal and other capital reserves + Accumulated earnings with capitalization agreement + (0.5 x Unrealized profit and net income in subsidiaries) - Goodwill - (0.5 x Investment in subsidiaries) + Perpetual subordinated debt (maximum amount that can be included is 17.65% of Capital + Reserves + Accumulated earnings with capitalization agreement + Unrealized profit and net income in subsidiaries - Goodwill).

(11) Common Equity Tier I = Capital + Reserves – 100% of applicable deductions (investment in subsidiaries, goodwill, intangibles and net deferred taxes that rely on future profitability) + retained earnings + unrealized gains.

Adjusted Risk-Weighted Assets = Risk-weighted assets - (RWA Intangible assets, excluding goodwill, + RWA Deferred tax assets generated as a result of temporary differences in income tax, in excess of 10% of CET1, + RWA Deferred tax assets generated as a result of past losses).

1.Interest-earning assets (IEA)

 

At the end of March 2018, IEAs reported a slight contraction QoQ after posting relatively significant growth in 4Q17 due to an increase in year-end loan balances. Nevertheless, the YoY evolution, which eliminates the effect of seasonality of loans, reveals an improvement that was mainly attributable to loan growth, and to a lesser extent, to the evolution of total investments. In terms of loans, our most profitable asset, the slight recovery posted by average daily balances, which expanded 2.8% QoQ and 7% YoY, was primarily due to growth in the Wholesale Banking, Consumer, Mibanco and Mortgage segments.

1.1Evolution of IEA

 

Total loans

 

Total loans, measured in quarter-end balances, remained at a similar level as in 4Q17, which was expected since last quarter growth was concentrated near the end of the period. This was in line with:

 

(i)Loan growth in wholesale banking; and

 

(ii)Growth in all segments of Retail Banking and Mibanco, partially explained by seasonality. In the Retail Banking portfolio, the SME-Pyme segment led expansion.

 

YoY evolution of quarter-end balances, which eliminates the seasonality effect, shows a significant improvement in loan growth, particularly if compared with the low loan growth YoY registered in 1Q17 (+1%).

 

It is noteworthy that 1Q18 shows an improvement in loan evolution, particularly since loan growth measured in quarter-end balances in 1Q17 was -2.5% QoQ and 1% YoY.

 

Investments

 

The YoY analysis of the composition of the investment portfolio mainly reflects the impact of applying NIIF 9 at the Credicorp level, which has meant that approximately S/ 1,593.4 million in investments that were previously classified as available for sale (in accordance with NIC 39) are currently classified as trading securities.

 

 

1 Quarter-end balance

2 The names that IFRS 9 defines for accounts related to investments are: Investment Securities at Fair Value Through Profit or Loss Investment (FVTPL), Investment Securities at Fair Value Through Other Comprehensive Income Investment (FVOCI) and Investment Securities at Amortized Cost. These names will not be used for practical reasons, instead the following will be used: Trading Securities, Investments Available for Sale and Investments Held to Maturity, respectively.

 

 5

 

 

Other IEA

 

BCRP and other banks fell -11.2% QoQ and -10.2% YoY due to lower balances in BCRP, which was in line with a contraction in BCRP instruments at the BCP consolidated level due to maturities.

 

1.2 Credicorp Loans

 

1.2.1 Loan evolution by business segment

 

Next, we will discuss loan composition by business segments measured in average daily balances, which provides a clearer picture of interest income generation relative to loans, Credicorp’s primary source of income. Additionally, average daily loans reveal trends or variations to a different degree than quarter-end balances, which immediately reflect the effect of loan payments or disbursements that take place at quarter-end. These factors have a less marked effect on average daily balances and as such, provide a less distorted view of the evolution of interest income generation on loans.

 

In general, average daily loan balances posted an improvement in their dynamic both QoQ and YoY due to a recovery in Wholesale Banking volumes, which was accompanied by loan growth in the Retail Banking, Mibanco and BCP Bolivia segments.

 

With regard to the portfolio risk, a shift has occurred at BCP Stand-alone, where Wholesale Banking has increased its share of total loans QoQ. This has had a negative impact on the Net Interest Margin (NIM), which we will explain later in this report.

In the analysis by segment, QoQ expansion in loans reflects:

 

(i)Loan growth in Wholesale Banking, both in the Corporate Banking sub-segment (+3.2% QoQ) and in Middle Market Banking (6.9% QoQ). Both segments reported growth in short- and long-term loans.

 

(ii)Growth in the Consumer and Mortgage segments within Retail Banking.

 

(iii)Growth in Mibanco loans, which was attributable to an improvement in loan officers’ productivity. This has allowed the subsidiary to continue focusing on financial inclusion (new clients in the System) as well as supporting business-growth of current clients.

 

(iv)BCP Bolivia reported growth of +1.7% QoQ in 1Q18, measured in average daily balances, this evolution was due primarily to growth in Corporate Banking and in the Mortgage segment.

 

It is important to note that the Consumer and Credit Card segments continue to post growth after a decision was made to resume efforts to drive expansion in these portfolios (+4.5% and +1.5% QoQ respectively). The aforementioned represents a significant improvement if we consider that these segments reported either a contraction or very low growth in 2017: 1T reported negative growth of -0.4% and -0.5% in the Consumer and Credit Card segments respectively; 2Q also posted contractions of -0.5% and -2.7% respectively; while 3Q reported rates of +0.2% and -1.2% respectively.

Highest growth in volumes

Largest contraction in volumes

 

In the analysis by currency, QoQ expansion was attributable to increase in both in the LC portfolio (+2.3% QoQ) and in the FC portfolio (+3.8% QoQ).

 

The aforementioned dynamic is also observable in the YoY analysis.

At BCP Stand-alone, the loan dollarization level increased slightly YoY due to an increase in the dollarization levels of Wholesale Banking, SME-Business, Consumer and Credit Card. This was somewhat offset by the decrease in the dollarization levels in the SME-Pyme and Mortgage segments. This increase in the level of dollarization does not represent an increase in FX-risk on credit risk, as is evident in the sensitivity analysis in the figure below, which shows that the percentage of the loan portfolio that is highly exposed to FX risk continues to fall to levels that are increasingly close to 0%.

1.2.4BCRP de-dollarization plan at BCP Stand-alone

 

At the end of 2014, BCRP established a Loan De-dollarization Program that included, among other measures, setting progressive targets to reduce the stock of US dollar loans by June 2015, December 2015, December 2016, December 2017 and December 2018. There are two stocks of US dollar loans that should be reduced: the total FC portfolio, with some exceptions, and the joint mortgage and car loan portfolio. The balance required at the end of December 2018 is as follows:

 

(i)For the total FC portfolio, 2017’s benchmark will remain in place. In this scenario, the balance at the end of December 2018 must represent no more than 80% of total loans at the end of September 2013 (excluding loans that fulfill certain requirements).

 

At the end of March 2018, BCP Stand-alone was very close to reaching BCR’s goal of December 2018, achieving a compliance level of 99%.

 

(ii)For the FC loan portfolio in the Mortgage and Car segments, the benchmark will remain at 2017’s level until November 2018, followed by a 10% adjustment in December. Every year, the goal will be adjusted by 10% until reaching a level equivalent to at least 5% of Net Shareholders’ Equity. The balance at the end of December 2018 should represent no more than 60% of the balance posted in February 2013.

 

At the end of March 2018, BCP Stand-alone’s compliance with BCR’s de-dollarization program stands at 102%.

1.2.5Market share in loans

 

Market share in Peru

 

 

(1) Mortgage segment includes Mibanco's market share of 1.1% as of February 2018 and December 2017, and of 1.0% as of March 2017.

(2) Consumer segment includes Mibanco's market share of 1.8% as of February 2018 and December 2017, and of 2.3% as of March 2017.

(3) Market Shares for Corporate, Middle-market and SME-Business are as of March 2018.

 

At the end of February 2018, BCP Stand-alone continued to lead the market with a market share (MS) of 29.2%, which was significantly higher than the level posted by its closest competitor. This level is very similar to that obtained in 4Q17 (29.3%) and in 1Q17 (29.1%).

 

Both Corporate Banking and Middle Market Banking reported a decrease of -30 and -20 in their MS QoQ, respectively. In the YoY evolution, Corporate Banking reported a reduction of -120 bps in its MS while Middle Market Banking posted an increase of +250 bps. It is important to mention that both segments continue to lead in their respective markets.

 

The market share of Retail Banking was relatively stable as it continued to lead in the vast majority of its segments, with the exception of SME-Business, where it ranks second but determined to continue growing its market share (up +280 bps YoY).

 

Mibanco reported an MS for the SME segment that topped 4Q17 result by 60 bps to situate at 23.0%. This represents an increase of +50 bps with regard to the figure posted in 1Q17.

 

Finally, BCP Bolivia’s market share remained stable QoQ but grew +20 bps YoY, allowing the bank to remain in fourth place in the Bolivian Financial System.

2.Funding Sources

 

At the end of 1Q18, deposits continued to increase its share in Credicorp’s total funding, which had a positive impact on funding cost given that the growth in deposits was mainly attributable to non-interest bearing demand deposits and savings deposits. Additionally, this funding source has replaced BCRP instruments, which continue to decline in this quarter, as they mature. In this context, Credicorp’s funding cost contracted 9 bps QoQ and 7 bps YoY; this reduction was primarily attributable to BCP Stand-alone.

(1) The funding costs differs from previously reported due to the methodoloy change of the denominator, which do not include the following accounts:acceptances outstanding, reserves for property and casualty claims, reserve for unearned premiums, reinsurance payable and other liabilities.

 

The figure of the evolution of Credicorp’s funding structure and cost was calculated on quarter-end balances.

 

The QoQ and YoY evolution show a change in the funding structure where deposits have increased their share of total funding. This change has been evident for several quarters and is due primarily to a sustained reduction in BCRP instruments since 2016, which was particularly marked in 1Q18.

Total deposits   89,880,882    97,170,411    98,193,105    1.1%   9.2%

 

At the subsidiary level, total deposits expanded QoQ, which was mainly associated with an increase in non-interest bearing deposits and savings deposits.

 

The following points are noteworthy components of the QoQ increase:

 

(i)Growth in non-interest bearing deposits, which is attributable primarily to BCP Stand-alone and in line with an increase in the average volume of current account balances of Wholesale Banking clients, and
(ii)expansion in savings deposits, which was mainly explained through BCP Stand-alone.

 

The aforementioned helped offset the QoQ reduction in:

 

(i)Time deposits, at BCP Stand-alone, due to the exit of some funds that were obtained through Capital repatriation. The latter was partially offset by QoQ increase in Mibanco’s Time deposits, which was associated with active campaigns in 4Q to capture institutional clients.

 

(ii)Severance indemnity deposits, which dropped due to a seasonal effect that is present in the first quarter of every year given that the second Severance indemnity payment is made every November; therefore, these deposits increase every 4Q.

 

(iii)Interest bearing demand deposits, associated with institutional clients of Wholesale Banking.

 

In YoY terms, total deposits increased +9.2%, primarily associated with:

 

(i)growth in Non-interest bearing deposits due to a higher average volume maintained in current accounts held by institutional clients.

 

(ii)expansion in Savings deposits, which was due to campaigns throughout the year to capture savings.

 

(iii)Finally, YoY growth in time deposits, which is the result of the campaigns that were rolled out in 2017 to capture funds from individuals and institutional clients.

2.2.1Deposits: dollarization level

 

Dollarization Level of Deposits (1) – BAP

 

 

(1) Q-end balances.

 

Credicorp’s Deposits posted a reduction QoQ in their dollarization levels due to the expansion in LC deposits, which was associated primarily with the increase posted in non-interest bearing deposits and savings deposits. The aforementioned was accentuated by the drop in FC deposits, which was attributable to a decrease in time deposits.

 

In the YoY evolution, it is evident that deposits have experienced and on-going reduction in their dollarization levels, which was associated with growth in non-interest bearing, savings and time deposits in LC.

 

Credicorp - Deposit Dollarization measured in quarter-end balances

 

 

The QoQ evolution reveals on-going reduction in the dollarization level of demand deposits3, time deposits and savings deposits. The dollarization level of Severance indemnity deposits increased slightly given that the increase in LC withdrawals outpaced that of FC (refer to the comment on Severance indemnity deposits in section 2.2 Deposits.

 

In the YoY analysis, the on-going contraction in the dollarization level is present in all deposit types, in line with the trend observed in over the last few quarters.

At the end of February 2018, the Credicorp’s subsidiaries in Peru, BCP and Mibanco, continued to lead the market for total deposits with a market share (MS) of 32.8%. This MS level is approximately 13.6 percentage points above of the group’s closest competitor.

 

In the YoY analysis, total MS remained stable in comparison to March 2017 (32.1%), mainly due to growth in the MS of time deposits.

 

BCP Bolivia continued to rank fifth in the Bolivian financial market system with a MS of 9.9% at the end of March 2018 versus 9.8% at the end of December 2017. The YoY analysis reveals an increase in the MS with regard to the level posted in March 2017 (9.2%), which was associated with efforts to capture more funds.

 

2.3Other funding sources

 

Other funding sources  As of   % change 
S/ 000  Mar 17   Dec 17   Mar 18   QoQ   YoY 
Due to banks and correspondents   7,639,760    7,996,889    7,824,148    -2.2%   2.4%

Total of other funding sources fell -11.6% QoQ, mainly due to a drop in the level of BCRP instruments and to a lesser extent, to a decrease in Bonds and Subordinated debt and Due to banks and correspondents.

 

 14

 

 

BCRP instruments posted a drop in their share of total funding both QoQ and YoY; this was primarily due to expirations of CD repos and repos of public treasury bonds.    

 

Bonds and subordinated debt due to the expiration of an international corporate bond, which expired in January 2018.

 

The reduction in due to banks and correspondents originated with the decrease in due to foreign banks through BCP Stand-alone.

 

The YoY analysis shows a similar trend mainly explained by the reduction of BCRP Instruments.

 

2.4Loan / Deposit (L/D)

 

Loan / Deposit Ratio by Subsidiary

 

 

Credicorp’s L/D ratio reduced QoQ to situate at 102.4% after deposits expanded at a greater rate than total loans (+1.1% vs +0.1%). In the analysis by subsidiary, it is evident that this reduction was associated with BCP Stand-alone, in line with the higher level of deposits QoQ. Mibanco’s L/D ratio situate at 128.4% in 1Q18, due to QoQ growth in total loans.

 

 15

 

 

Loan / Deposit Ratio by Currency
 
Local Currency   Foreign Currency
     
     

 

The QoQ analysis by currency indicates a reduction in the L/D ratio for LC at Credicorp, which was attributable to the increase in LC deposits. The FC L/D ratio registered an increase due to QoQ loan growth in FC at BCP Stand-alone.

 

In the YoY analysis, the L/D ratio reported a decrease that was attributable to an on-going reduction in the dollarization level of deposits in 2017 and 1Q18. The aforementioned, in turn, had an impact on the L/D ratio for FC, which increased YoY given that the deposit level in FC dropped. Growth was also accentuated by an increase in FC loan volumes throughout 2017 and at the beginning of 2018.

 

2.5Funding Cost

 

The cost of funding at Credicorp fell 9 bps QoQ, which reflects:

 

(i)The on-going changes in the funding structure, as discussed previously in the report; in this scenario, lower-cost deposits continued to increase their share of the funding structure. Additionally, it is important to note that the increase in deposits took place in LC.

 

(ii)Since 2017, BCRP has adopted measures to systematically reduce the reference rate (50 bps of reduction only in 2018); this has led to a drop in the LC funding cost after three years of upward pressures.

 

In the YoY analysis, the funding cost fell -7 bps YoY, in line with the evolution of the funding structure. In this scenario, deposits have significantly increased their share of total liabilities (76.7% in 1Q18 and 73.0% in 1Q17), acting as a substitute for BCRP instruments and due to banks and correspondents, which posted lower levels in the mix. This substitution has led to a reduction in the funding cost.

 

The table below shows the funding cost4 by subsidiary:

 

   BCP
Stand-alone
   Mibanco   BCP Bolivia   ASB   Banking business   Credicorp (1) 
1Q17   2.19%   5.02%   2.02%   2.19%   2.40%   2.38%
4Q17   2.08%   4.68%   2.70%   1.61%   2.29%   2.40%
1Q18   2.05%   4.49%   2.86%   1.07%   2.24%   2.31%

 

(1) Includes banking business results, Pacifico, Prima AFP, and other minor subsidiaries and consolidation adjustments.

 

 

4 The funding costs differs from previously reported levels due to a change in the methodology to calculate the denominator, which no longer includes: outstanding account acceptances, reserves for property and casualty claims, reserve for unearned premiums, reinsurance payable and other liabilities.

 

 16

 

 

(i)The funding cost at BCP Stand-alone and Mibanco, which has experienced upward pressures since 2014, continued to stabilize in 2017. At the beginning of 2018, both institutions posted lower funding costs.

 

(ii)The funding cost at BCP Bolivia continued to increase QoQ due to higher expenses for deposits and for time deposits in particular.

3.Portfolio quality and Provisions for loan losses

 

It is particularly noteworthy the decrease QoQ and YoY in the cost of risk (CofR), which situated at 1.48%. This was mainly as a result of the improvement in risk-quality achieved in SMEs, Mibanco and Consumer financing business segments in the last three years. Furthermore, the sale of non-performing loans under judiciary process allowed us to reduce IOLs and NPLs ratios, while increased the coverage ratios.

(4) Non-performing loans include past-due loans and refinanced loans. (Quarter-end balances)

 

Credicorp has adopted IFRS9 requirements (See Annex 11.10 IFRS9 Disclosure, for more detail) since January 1st, 2018.

 

With regard to the impact that the adoption of IFRS9 has had on the allowance for loan losses, it is important to consider two effects:

 

(i)One-off effect: On January 1st, 2018, we registered an increase of S/320.7 million in the allowance for loan losses. This led to a reduction in retained earnings of S/226.1 million. In this context, the allowance for loan losses rose +6.8% QoQ and 14.3% YoY. This had a positive effect on the coverage ratios for internal overdue and non-performing loans.

 

(ii)Recurring impact through the P&L: Starting on January 1st 2018, provisions for loan losses are calculated under the expected loss methodology, which is mainly based on the probability of default (Forward Looking). In 1Q18, provisions for loan losses contracted -15.9% QoQ and -30.8% YoY, as we will explain later in this report.

 

3.1Provisions for loan losses

 

The QoQ analysis shows a reduction of -15.9% in the provision for loan losses net of recoveries, which was attributable to:

 

(i)An improvement in the risk quality of Retail Banking segments, after having posted higher-than-expected delinquency levels few years ago (SME-Pyme in 2014 and Consumer, Credit Card and Mortgage between 2015 and 2016). This led to an improvement in the default ratios of these segments.

 

 18

 

 

(ii)An improvement in the risk quality of Mibanco’s loan portfolio from 2015 to date.

 

All aforementioned, together with the slight and gradual recovery observed in the macroeconomic scenario, was also captured by the IFRS9 methodology.

 

It is important to note that although Mibanco, SME-Pyme, Consumer, Credit card and Mortgage segments represent, when combined, approximately 40% of Credicorp’s loan portfolio, these segments account for approximately 85% of the provisions for loan losses. Therefore, the improvement in the risk quality of these segments generates a more significant impact under the IFRS9 methodology (which is forward-looking in nature) than under the previous methodology.

 

In the YoY analysis, the provision for loan losses net of recoveries fell -30.8%, in line with the aforementioned improvement in risk quality. Furthermore, it is important to remember that provisions for loan losses made in 1Q17 included the effect of El Nino Phenomenon and the Lava Jato case.

 

3.2Portfolio Quality

 

Delinquency ratios

 

 

(1) Adjusted NPL ratio = (Non-performing loans + Charge-offs) / (Total loans + Charge-offs).

(2) Cost of risk = Annualized provisions for loan losses net of recoveries / Total loans.

(3) The cost of risk of the Underlying portfolio for March 17 and June 17 was calculated eliminating provisions related to the construction sector and the El Nino weather phenomenon.

 

Prior to analyzing the evolution of delinquency indicators, it is important to note that:

 

(i)Traditional delinquency indicators (IOL and NPL ratios) continue to be distorted by the presence of loans with real estate collateral (commercial and residential properties). This means that a significant portion of the loans that are more than 150 days past-due cannot be written-off although provisions have been set aside given that foreclosure takes 5 years on average.

 

(ii)In the second half (2H) of each year, loans are more dynamic, mainly in SME-Pyme and Mibanco given that the main campaigns in these segments (Christmas Campaigns) are conducted in the second half of the year and these short-term loans are paid in full in 1H of the following year.

 

It is important to note that the reduction posted in these ratios is in line with the sale of approximately S/177 million of non-performing loans under judiciary process that were provisioned and had real-estate collateral.

 

 19

 

 

Coverage ratios

 

Coverage ratios for the internal overdue and non-performing loan portfolios rose given:

 

(i)First, the one-off effect related to the adoption of IFRS9 requirements since January 1st, 2018, which we explained earlier;

 

(ii)Second, the provision for loan losses net of recoveries made in the first quarter of 2018;

 

(iii)Third, the sale of S/177 million of non-performing loans, mentioned before.

 

3.2.1Delinquency indicators by business line

 

Wholesale Banking – Delinquency ratios

 

 

(i)The QoQ analysis shows a contraction in the internal overdue loan portfolio of the Wholesale Banking segment given that overdue debt was refinanced. However, the non-performing loan portfolio posted slight growth that reflects a degree of deterioration. In a scenario in which loan balances grew +1.5% QoQ, in line with the increase in refinanced loan volumes, the internal overdue loan ratio fell QoQ while the non-performing loan ratio increased.

 

BCP Bolivia – Delinquency ratios

 

 

(ii)BCP Bolivia reported a QoQ and YoY increase in its IOL and NPL ratios. This was attributable to the increase in the volume of overdue loans, mainly in Mortgage and in fixed assets.

 

 20

 

 

SME-Business – Delinquency ratios

 

 

(iii)It is important to note that the SME-Business segment is also affected by loan seasonality; as much, the YoY analysis generates a more accurate view of loan evolution than the QoQ analysis. Traditional delinquency ratios, IOL and NPL, posted reductions of -76 bps and -75 bps respectively, in line with recoveries of loans subject to judicial processes. It is important to note that the delinquency ratios of this business continue to be within the organization’s risk appetite.

 

SME - Pyme – Delinquency ratios

 

 

(iv)In the SME-Pyme segment, it is important to analyze the early delinquency indicator, which excludes loans that are overdue less than 60 days (volatile loans with a very high percentage of recovery) and those overdue more than 150 days (loans for which provisions have been set aside but which cannot be written-off due to the existence of real estate collateral– commercial properties that take five years on average to liquidate).

 

SME-Pyme’s early delinquency has posted a YoY downward trend since 2H14, in line with on-going improvement in the risk quality of vintages, which in turn reflects a series of adjustments to the SME-Pyme business model. The positive results of this effort are more evident in the vintages originated from 2015 and on. In this context, early delinquency remained stable YoY in 1Q18.

 

It is important to note that although traditional delinquency ratios continue to be distorted, they posted a YoY reduction that was driven by the sale of non-performing loans under judiciary process in 1Q18.

 

 21

 

 

Mortgage – Delinquency ratios

 

 

(iv)In terms of Mortgage loans, it is important to remember that these indicators are also affected by the existence of real estate collateral given that loans cannot be written-off until foreclosure, which takes 5 years on average. Regardless, traditional delinquency indicators decreased QoQ given that (i) the total portfolio grew faster than the internal overdue and non-performing loan portfolios and (ii) the sale of non-performing loans under judiciary process in 1Q18.

 

The Early Delinquency indicator, which excludes the effect of loans that are more than 150 days overdue, rose +16 bps due to Credicorp’s decision to grow in segments with higher risk to maximize the portfolio’s profitability while maintaining this loan book within the organization’s risk appetite. It is important to note that this ratio is within the average range observed over the past two years. The Early Delinquency indicator remained stable YoY.

 

Consumer – Delinquency ratios

 

 

(iv)The Consumer portfolio continued to post improvements in its risk profile in comparison to the profile of vintages from 2015 and before, which generated the delinquency problem. The new composition of this portfolio reflects the changes that have been implemented in the risk management and collections policies and also incorporates the calibrated profile generated by changes in the risk policy for admissions.

 

Early delinquency fell -17 bps QoQ and -36 bps YoY due to improvements in the risk quality of new vintages. In this context, the indicator reached levels lower than those seen in 2013, before the portfolio began to deteriorate. It is evident that we have room to increase the speed of growth, which will allow us to maximize the portfolio’s profitability while maintaining this loan book within the organization’s risk appetite.

 

 22

 

 

Traditional delinquency ratios posted a reduction QoQ and YoY, in line with the reduction in internal overdue and non-performing loans balances. This improvement was accompanied by an acceleration in the pace of total portfolio expansion, which was driven by rising loan origination levels. More loans were placed after product offerings were improved and adjustments were made to loan origination policies.

 

Credit Card – Delinquency ratios

 

 

(vii)Early delinquency decreased -63 bps QoQ and -39 bps YoY, in line with (i) a decrease in the delinquency levels of some clients in FEN disaster areas and (ii) an improvement in the portfolio mix, where riskier segments represented a lower share of total loans. This trend reflects the improvement in the risk quality of new vintages after corrective measures were applied to address the delinquency problem that became evident at the end of 2015.

 

Mibanco – Delinquency ratios

 

 

(viii)The IOL and NPL ratios posted increases both QoQ and YoY given that internal overdue loans grew at a faster rate than the total portfolio, which was attributable to (i) the expiration of the skip programs offered to clients affected by FEN and (ii) the slight deterioration at the portfolio level. Additionally, the YoY increase in the NPL ratio was also due to the increase registered in the volumes of refinanced loans.

 

 23

 

 

4.Net Interest Income (NII)

 

In 1Q18, the QoQ drop in NII was due primarily to: i) the expansion of average daily loan balances was led by low-margin segments, ii) loan seasonality, which affects every 1Q, and iii) on-going and aggressive competition, not only in Wholesale Banking but also in some segments of Retail Banking. In this context, NIM contracted -11 bps with regard to 4Q17’s. Despite the aforementioned, the improvement in the cost of risk led risk-adjusted NIM to increase +8 bps with regard to 4Q17’s and +23 bps compared to 1Q17’s.

4.1Interest Income

 

In the QoQ analysis, the slight 1.3% drop in interest income was due primarily to lower growth in interest income from loans, which was due to:

 

(i)Growth in average daily loan balances was driven by low-margin segments, as indicated in section 1.2 Credicorp Loans. Although average daily loan balances expanded 2.8% QoQ, 68% of total growth in volumes came from Wholesale Banking whose margins are lower than other segments.

 

(ii)Furthermore, expansion in average daily balances was reported mainly in FC loans, which entail lower interest rates than their LC counterparts.

 

In the YoY analysis, interest income expanded +2.0%. This was primarily attributable to:

 

(i)An increase in interest on loans due to the expansion of 7% in average daily balances.

 

(ii)To a lesser extent, to growth in interest income on investments due to a more active management of the proprietary investment portfolio in a context of low loan growth throughout 2017, looking for maximizing the profitability of IEAs.

 

4.2Interest Expenses

 

The elements discuss in section 4.1 were offset by a drop in interest expenses (2.6% QoQ). This decline was attributable to a change in the funding structure as indicated in section 2. Funding Sources. Credicorp’s funding structure continued to reflect higher growth in deposits as a funding source, which had a positive impact on funding cost given that the expansion in deposits was mainly attributable to non-interest bearing demand deposits. This had a positive impact on interest expenses, in particular:

 

 24

 

 

(i)Lower interest expenses on borrowed funds, due primarily to a significant reduction in the volume of BCRP instruments and, to a lesser extent, to the impact of a drop in interest expenses on deposits given that the volume of time deposits fell QoQ.

 

(ii)The drop in BCRP instruments, which are placed solely in LC and imply higher costs than those associated with the funds captured this 1Q18.

 

All of the aforementioned helped offset the increase in interest expenses on bonds and subordinated notes.

 

In the YoY analysis, interest expenses grew +2.7%. This was mainly due to growth in expenses for interest on deposits, which posted higher growth due to the volume effect given that the deposits that were responsible for the bulk of the increase implied lower costs. It is important to note the reduction in interest on loans, which was associated with the drop in BCRP instruments.

 

4.3Net Interest Margin (NIM) and Risk-Adjusted NIM

 

Credicorp’s NIM and Risk-Adjusted NIM (1)

 

 

(1) Starting on 1Q17, we exclude derivatives from the NII result. For comparative purposes, figures starting from 1Q16 have been recalculated with

the new methodology

 

NIM deteriorated QoQ and YoY due to:

 

(i)Higher growth in low margin segments, as indicated in the previous section. This led to higher growth in average IEA than in NII.

 

(ii)It is important to remember that seasonal factors every 1Q pressure growth downward.

 

Risk-adjusted NIM posted a recover both QoQ and YoY due to on-going decreases in expenses for provisions for loan losses.

 

 25

 

 

Loan NIM fell both QoQ and YoY, in line with growth in lower-margin segments such as Wholesale Banking and due to high competition in the market. In YoY terms, this indicator followed a trend similar to that seen QoQ.    

NIM on loans 5

 

 

 

It is also important to analyze NIM by subsidiary. The table below contains the interest margins that were posted by each of Credicorp’s main subsidiaries.

 

NIM Breakdown  BCP Stand-alone   Mibanco   BCP Bolivia   ASB   Credicorp (2) 
1Q17 (1)   4.63%   15.47%   4.58%   2.12%   5.45%
4Q17   4.50%   16.27%   4.08%   2.34%   5.28%
1Q18   4.39%   16.04%   3.63%   2.19%   5.17%

 

NIM: Annualized Net interest income / Average period end and period beginning interest earning assets.

(1) Figures of ASB and Credicorp differs from previously reported, please consider the date presented on this report.

(2) Credicorp also includes Credicorp Capital, Prima, Grupo Credito and Eliminations for consolidation purposes."

 

The QoQ evolution of global NIM by subsidiary shows a reduction in Credicorp’s margin; this was primarily associated with the evolution of BCP Stand-alone, which accounts for around 65% of Credicorp’s net interest income. The significant recovery registered by loans (measured by average daily balances), which took place mainly in the Wholesale Banking segment, was not reflected in the NIM level given that these loans imply lower margins.

 

Mibanco, which represents around 24% of net interest income, registered a slight decline in its NIM QoQ despite the fact that loan growth posted significant improvement. The aforementioned stems from the following: higher growth in average IEAs than in NII in 1Q18. Nevertheless, it is important to note that in 4Q17, Mibanco achieved a NIM level above 16% and this trend continued in 1Q18.

 

 

5 NIM on loans is calculated as follows:

 

 

The share of loans within total earning assets is calculated by dividing the average of the beginning and closing balances of total loans for the reporting period, by the average of the beginning and closing balances of the interest earning assets for the reporting period.

 

 26

 

 

5.Non-Financial Income

 

Although non-financial income contracted QoQ due to seasonality and the impact of non-recurring income in 4Q17, growth is evident YoY due to an improvement in fee income. It is important to note that in 4Q17, fee income and gains on foreign exchange transactions reported the highest quarterly levels of the year, posting a recovery after quarters of relatively negative results. It is important to note that gains on sales of securities incorporate the effect of the sale of ENEL shares.

 

Non-financial income  Quarter   % change 
S/ 000  1Q17   4Q17   1Q18   QoQ   YoY 
Fee income (1)   681,047    783,976    744,677    -5.0%   9.3%
Net gain on foreign exchange transactions   166,486    172,709    162,295    -6.0%   -2.5%
Net gain from associates (2)   6,023    4,747    8,387    76.7%   39.2%
Net gain on sales of securities   57,821    237,705    92,389    -61.1%   59.8%
Net gain on derivatives   54,341    8,213    (312)   -103.8%   -100.6%
Result on exchange difference   9,070    1,991    5,889    195.8%   -35.1%
Other non-financial income   68,745    69,249    82,876    19.7%   20.6%
Total non financial income   1,043,533    1,278,590    1,096,201    -14.3%   5.0%

(+) EPS contribution (50%)   11.78    9.40    13.24    40.9%   12.4%
(-) Private health insurance deduction (50%)   -5.76    -4.65    -4.85    4.4%   -15.7%
(=) Net gain from associates excluding Non-recurring income / expense   6.02    4.75    8.39    -76.7%   39.3%
(+) Non-recurring income/expense   -    -    -    -    - 
(=) Net gain from associates   6.02    4.75    8.39    76.7%   39.3%

 

The YoY evolution shows a contraction in non-financial income due to:

 

(i)The reduction in Net Gain on Sales of Securities, given that in 4Q17 the result included the effect of the sale of shares of ENEL on the proprietary investment portfolio (totaling approximately S/163 million). This was attenuated by gains on the proprietary investment portfolio due to both an increase in the mark-to-market (MtM) of trading securities and to the gains produced by the sale of certain positions in the investments available for sale portfolio. The gains produced by the proprietary investment portfolio are attributable to the asset and liability management strategy rolled out throughout 2017 in a scenario of low loan growth, which sought to maximize the profitability of interest earning assets.

 

(ii)The lower level of Fee Income was due to a decrease in banking service commissions at BCP Stand-alone, mainly for personal loans, SME loans, foreign trade and payments and collections, which posted levels in 4Q17 that reflected the positive effect of loan seasonality, and to the increase seen in the transactions volume at year-end.

 

(iii)The decrease in Net Gain on Foreign Exchange Transactions was due to the decrease posted at BCP Stand-alone in a scenario marked by both limited volatility in the exchange rate and a decrease in volumes, which contrasts with the improvement that transactions volumes post at year-end due to seasonal factors and to the exchange rate volatility posted in 4Q17.

 

All of the aforementioned was slightly attenuated by the increase in Other Income, which was primarily attributable to the sale of written-off loans at BCP Stand-alone.

 

 27

 

 

In the YoY analysis, a 5.0% increase in non-financial income is evident. This was due primarily to:

 

(i)An increase of +9.3% in Fee Income, which was primarily attributable to an improvement in banking commissions at BCP Stand-alone (as we will explain in detail in section 5.1.2 Fee Income for the Banking Business) and was also due, although to a lesser extent, to an improvement in the results of Credicorp Capital, which was mainly associated with the asset management business at the regional level and with the corporate finance business in Peru.

 

(ii)Net Gain on Sale of Securities; which was due primarily to the sale of sovereign bonds issued by the Peruvian Government, which were part of BCP Stand-alone’s proprietary portfolio, as well as to an improvement in the MtM of trading securities, which are also part of BCP Stand-alone’s proprietary portfolio.

(3) Mainly Wholesale fees.

(4) Figures differ from previously reported, please consider the data presented on this report.

(5) Includes fees from BCP Bolivia, Mibanco, network usage and other services to third parties, among others.

 

In the QoQ analysis, fee income in the banking business fell -2.7%. This was mainly due to:

 

(i)A decrease in income from SME Loans and Personal Loans, due to significant activity in these accounts last quarter, which was attributable to seasonal factors.

 

(ii)A decrease in income for Foreign Trade, which was primarily due to a decrease in income from Import Letters of Credit and, to a lesser extent, Export Letters of Credit, which in 4Q17 reported better results due to seasonality at year-end.

 

The aforementioned was slightly offset by the Others account, due to an increase in fee income from BCP Bolivia for wires transfers.

 

In the YoY analysis, growth of 5.4% was due to:

 

(i)An improvement in transactional activity, which was reflected in the growth in fees from Off-balance Sheet, Drafts and Transfers, Miscellaneous Accounts and Payments and Collections.

 

(ii)The aforementioned was accompanied by a slight recovery in loans, which generated higher fee income from Commercial Loans.

 

(iii)Significant growth in the Others accounts reflects the increase in the volume of banking services from BCP Bolivia and Mibanco.

 

The aforementioned offset the YoY reduction in fees from Foreign Trade, which was primarily due to a decrease in income from Import Letters of Credit and, to a lesser extent, from Export Letters of Credit.

6.Insurance Underwriting Result

 

The insurance underwriting result fell -4.5% QoQ and -5.2% YoY due to an increase in net claims and acquisition cost, mainly attributable to P&C business. The latter was attenuated by the increase QoQ and YoY in Net earned premiums of Life Insurance business.

 

Insurance underwriting result  Quarter   % change 
S/ 000  1Q17   4Q17   1Q18   QoQ   YoY 
Net earned premiums   465,304    470,837    508,202    7.9%   9.2%
Net claims   (280,964)   (283,354)   (294,745)   4.0%   4.9%

Total insurance underwriting result   122,278    121,342    115,909    -4.5%   -5.2%

 

(1) Includes net fees and underwriting expenses.

 

Total underwriting result by business

(S/ millions)

 

 

The QoQ drop in the underwriting result was due to i) a lower written premium in P&C, ii) higher loss ratio in Car and Wholesale lines; iii) a decrease in the underwriting income, given that as of 2018 this account must be registered as Written premiums and accrue in 12 months; iv) an increase of fees in Credit Life; iv) and lower received fees in Wholesale lines. This effect was mitigated by an increase in Net earned premiums in Life insurance business, mainly explained by Annuities, Credit Life and Group Life lines.

 

In the YoY reduction was primarily associated with the P&C business, which register an increase in claims in Medical Assistance and Car line as well as to higher acquisition costs. This effect was attenuated by an improvement in the underwriting result in the Life business due to an increase in written premium for Credit life.

 

6.1 Net earned premiums

Written premiums fell -5.6% in Property and Casualty and Life business. The drop in P&C was attributable to Car and Wholesale Lines (Fire and technical risks). In the Life insurance business, the decrease in premiums was due to the higher sales for the new product “Renta Flex” in 4Q17. Nevertheless, this effect was mitigated by annual renewals of mining policies in Group Life and higher premiums in “alliances’ channels” in Credit Life.

 

In the YoY analysis, Written premiums increased +7.4% mainly through Life Insurance business, which was in turn associated to a higher level of premiums in Annuities due to the “Renta Flex” product; and Credit Life through the “alliances channels”.

 

Net earned premiums grew 7.9% QoQ and 9.2% YoY, primarily through the life insurance business due to an increase in Credit Life premiums through alliances’ channels; and higher technical reserves in Annuities and AFP line in 4Q17.

 

6.2Net claims

 

Net claims by business

(S/ millions)

 

 

Net claims rose +4.0% QoQ due to an increase in the P&C and Life businesses. The increase in P&C was reported in Cars and was attributable to growth in reported cases in 1Q18; and the Wholesale line after the number of incidences registered for hull insurance and technical lines increased. In the Life insurance business, the increase in the loss ratio was attributable to AFP line due to a decrease in the discount rates used to calculate claims and; in the Individual life and Personal accidents lines, mainly to an increase in reported cases.

 

In the YoY analysis, net claims increased +4.9% both in Life insurance and in P&C business. The growth posted in the Life business was registered in Annuities and was attributable to pensions associated with the “Renta Flex” product and in AFP line due to a decrease in the discount rate used to calculate claims. In P&C, the increase was associated with Medical Assistance due to more IBNR (incurred but not reported) provisions.

Acquisition cost   (62,061)   (66,141)   (97,548)   47.5%   57.2%

 

The acquisition cost increased +47.5% QoQ due to a regulatory change regarding to underwriting income, given that in 2018 this account must be included in Written premiums. Additionally, fees increased in Credit Life due to the higher premiums in alliances’ channels, where brokerage fees are higher, and received fees6 in Wholesale lines (fire) fell due to a decrease in facultative policies in 1Q18.

 

In the YoY analysis, the acquisition cost increased +57.2% due to the aforementioned regulatory change. Additionally, fees increased due to higher sales for Credit Life in the Alliance channel.

7.Operating Expenses and Efficiency

 

The efficiency ratio decreased 250 bps QoQ due to a reduction in operating costs, in line with the seasonality effect that is present every 1Q. The YoY analysis reveals an increase of 100 bps, which reflects a scenario in which operating income expanded at a lower rate than that at which operating expenses did. This was primarily attributable to YoY growth in Employee Salaries and Benefits, which was in line with an increase in the number of employees.

 

Operating expenses  Quarter   % change 
S/ 000  1Q17   4Q17   1Q18   QoQ   YoY

(1) Operating income = Net interest income + Fee income + Gain on foreign exchange transactions + Net gain from associates + Net premiums earned + Net gain on derivatives+ Result on exchange difference

(2) Operating expenses = Total operating expenses + Acquisition cost - Other operating expenses.

(3) Operating expenses / Operating income.

"(4) Annualized operating currency / Average of Total Assets. Average is calculated with period-beginning and period-ending balances.

 

In the QoQ analysis, the improvement in operating efficiency was due primarily to a -6.4% reduction in operating expenses, which in turn reflected a contraction in administrative, general and tax expenses which was due to seasonal factors, as we will explain later in this report.

 

The aforementioned offset the negative effect of the slight reduction in operating income due to:

 

(i)A decrease of non-financial income, mainly at BCP Stand-alone, due to a contraction in fee income and in gains on foreign exchange transactions (explained in section 5. Non-financial income).

 

(ii)The drop in net interest income, as explained in section 4. Net interest income (NII).

 

In the YoY analysis, operating efficiency deteriorated due to 4.8% growth in operating expenses in a scenario in which operating income increased only 2.4%. The increase in operating expenses was due primarily to growth in Employee Salaries and Benefits, which was in turn mainly attributable to higher expenses for salaries in BCP Stand-alone and to a lesser extent, to an increase in administrative, general and taxes expenses. Growth in operating income was primarily associated with expansion in both fee income and in net interest income.

(1) Figures differ from previously reported, please consider the data presented on this report.

(2) Others include ASB, BCP Bolivia, Grupo Credito and eliminations for consolidation.

 

The QoQ decrease in administrative and general expenses was due to:

 

(i)The drop in Minor expenses, mainly at BCP Stand-alone, associated with lower expenses for insurance.

 

(ii)The decrease in expenses for Marketing, given that every 4Q is affected by seasonal factors that register the impact of expenses for end-of-year campaigns for products and services at BCP Stand-alone.

 

(iii)Consultants, due to higher expenses in this account in 4Q17, particularly at BCP Stand-alone, due to the digital innovation and cultural transformation projects. The aforementioned offset the increase posted by Mibanco for this account after the bank hired consultancy services for Effective Management.

 

In the YoY analysis, administrative and general expenses grew 1.6%, mainly due to an increase in eliminations following the consolidation of Pacifico of BCP Stand-alone and to a lesser extent, to an increase in marketing expenses. The aforementioned was slightly offset by a drop in minor expenses, particularly at Pacifico due to the elimination of transfer costs between EPS and Pacifico Vida and to lower expenses on insurance at BCP Stand-alone given that in 1Q17, a policy for unfortunate events to cover expenses for card cloning was assumed, generating additional costs to aggregate the effect to December 2016.

7.1 Operating Expenses / Total Average Assets Ratio

 

The ratio for operating expenses/average total assets fell QoQ and YoY. The QoQ reduction was due to the seasonal impacts on operating expenses that were outlined above. The annual analysis reveals an improvement in the ratio given that the increase in total average assets was greater than growth in expenses.

 

Operating Expenses / Total Average Assets Ratio

 

 

The following graph shows the evolution of the variation in operating expenses versus total average assets for the last 4 years. It is important to note that the improvements obtained compared to 2014 were attributable mainly to on-going and adequate management of operating expenses in an environment marked by low growth in assets and in loans, in particular in 2016 and 2017, as is evident in the figure below.

(1) Operating income + acquisition cost - other expenses) / (Net interest income + fee income + Net gain on foreign exchange transactions + Result on exchange difference + Net gain on derivates + Net gain from associates + Net earned premiums).

 

The analysis of the efficiency ratio by subsidiary shows that the improvement of +250 bps at Credicorp level was attributable primarily to BCP Stand-alone and was due, in large part, to a seasonal effect that is present every 4Q (described in the previous section) and to a lesser degree, to a decrease in the efficiency ratio at Prima AFP. The aforementioned offset the deterioration in operating efficiency at Mibanco.

 

It is important to note that Mibanco has improved its efficiency ratio every quarter since 1Q17. This reflects on-going control of operating expenses and a significant improvement in income generation. The deterioration in efficiency this quarter was due primarily to an increase in operating expenses for the implementation of the Effective Management project, which seeks to improve processes at the branch level to increase productivity.

 

In the YoY analysis, Credicorp’s efficiency ratio rose +100 bps. This growth was mainly attributable to a +100-bps increase at BCP Stand-alone and to a lesser extent, to the increases posted by other subsidiaries, with the notable exception of Mibanco, which reported a significant improvement of -590 bps.

At the end of 2017, Credicorp reported a comfortable capitalization level that was 33% higher than the capital required by the Peruvian Regulator. The increase in this ratio was driven by growth in regulatory capital (+12.1% QoQ), which was in turn associated with the distribution of net income attained in 2017 that implied an increase in special reserves and restricted special reserves, as per the announcement made in 1Q18.

 

With regard to the regulatory capital requirement, it increased QoQ due to the higher capital requirement from the Financial Consolidated Group, in particular from BCP Stand-alone.

 

In the YoY analysis, the regulatory capital ratio posted and slight decrease from 1.35 in 1Q17 to 1.33 in 1Q18. This was due to the effect on regulatory capital of Special Dividend Payment made in 4Q17, which was attenuated by the effect of net income generation in 1Q18.

At the end of 1Q18, the BIS ratio was situated at 15.91%, which topped the figure reported at the end of 4Q17

(15.05%). This was due to significant growth in regulatory capital (+6.1% QoQ), which was in turn associated with the distribution of net income attained in 2017 after the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders approved the capitalization of earnings as well as the increase in legal reserves in March 2018.

 

The Tier 1 ratio rose from 10.84% in 4Q17 to 11.75% in 1Q18 due to the evolution of Tier 1 (+8.8% QoQ) versus

the very slight increase in RWAs (0.3%).

 

Finally, the Common Equity Tier 1 ratio (CET1), the most rigorous capital ratio, reported a contraction of 61 bps QoQ contraction. This was attributable to the distribution of net income attained in 2017 after the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders declared dividends.

(1) Mibanco does not have Agentes or ATMs because it uses the BCP network. Mibanco branches include Banco de la Nacion branches,

which in Mar 17, Dec 17 and Mar 18 were 40, 38 and 38 respectively.

(2) ASB not included.

 

The distribution channels at BCP Stand-alone, Mibanco and BCP Bolivia reported a total of 9,835 points of contact at the end of 1Q18, which represented a drop of 131 points QoQ.

 

BCP Stand-alone posted a total of 8,950 points of contact at the end of 1Q18, which represented a reduction of 137 points QoQ. The aforementioned was due primarily to a drop in the number of Agentes BCP (-119 QoQ) given that in the first quarter of every year, a review is conducted of the performance of Agentes BCP and those that fail to reach profitability benchmarks for the year are shut down.

 

Mibanco maintained a stable number of branches QoQ. It is important to mention that Mibanco has an agreement with the Banco de la Nacion that allows it to use the latter’s offices throughout the country to reduce operating costs. At the end of 1Q18, these offices represented 12% (38 branches) of Mibanco’s total of 325 branches.

 

BCP Bolivia increased its points of contact by +5 points 1Q18 due to growth in the number of ATMs. This was in line with the bank’s growth strategy, which has set a goal to open 300 Agentes BCP by the end of 2018.

 

In the YoY analysis, BCP Stand-alone’s total number of points of contact rose by 180 units, which was mainly attributable to the increase in Agentes BCP (+205). This reflected the bank’s strategy to step-up banking penetration and promote migration to cost-efficient channels. The number of branches fell by 14 QoQ, which led to a subsequent drop in ATMs YoY (-11).

 

BCP Bolivia increased its points of contact (+89 YoY), mainly due to growth in agentes BCP. Mibanco posted an increase in its total number of branches (+7 YoY), which was attributable to on-going business expansion.

This quarter, the number of points of contact at BCP Stand-alone fell 137 points. Lima accounted for 60 points of this drop and the provinces, 77. It is important to note that the bank eliminated a branch in Lima with a traditional format to introduce a new layout known as “BCP Lab” to drive a pilot experience and explore new initiatives to improve the clients’ experiences. We are also actively promoting the use of digital channels to improve customer service and the efficiency of our points of contact.

 

The YoY analysis reported significant growth in the total number of points of contact. This was primarily attributable to an increase of Agentes BCP (+205), which took place both in Lima (+138) and in the provinces (+67). It is important to note that the plan for growth is based on the historic behavior of each territory with the aim of achieving the target set for national expansion.

 

The aforementioned helped offset the drop in Branches and ATMs. This decline was seen in both Lima and in the provinces and is in line with the bank’s strategy to promote migration to cost-efficient channels. The number of ATMs in the provinces fell YoY (-35) while in Lima, the total increased (+24) due to new ATMs installed in branches and in other public spaces.

(2) Figures from 1Q17 differ from previously reported because they included estimated figures.

 

The monthly average of transactions fell QoQ due to a seasonal effect. As such, the YoY analysis provides a clearer picture of growth in transaction volumes. It is important to note that in 1Q18, the largest proportion of the drop in volume was see in Internet Banking Via BCP (-19.3% QoQ), followed by Telephone Banking (-8.0% QoQ) and Tellers (-4.7% QoQ). This reflects the bank’s strategy to migrate to digital and cost-efficient channels.

 

Mobile Banking posted the largest increase of all transaction channels (+6.6%) and has significantly increased its share of total transactions, which was situated at 27.5% in 1Q18. This was in keeping with our strategy to migrate to digital channels.

 

In the YoY analysis, which excludes the seasonal effect, an increase was seen in the monthly transaction level (+19.3%). The aforementioned was due primarily to an increase in the transactions through the following channels:

 

(i)Mobile Banking (+85.8% YoY) continues to increase its share due to mobile applications such as “Banca Celular BCP” and “Tus Beneficios BCP;” moves to open accounts for time deposits; confirmation of transactions with digital fingerprints through Android and IOS; and loan payments.

 

(ii)Agentes BCP (+20.5% YoY), where the vast majority of the increase in the transactions volume is due to growth in deposits, withdrawals and payments of services (the option to pay electricity was established and the number of participating companies was increased), and, to a lesser extent, due to an increase in the volume of wire transfer issuances and withdrawals. The bank also instituted a campaign directed at the “socio agente BCP7” to promote electronic sales of SOAT.

(iii)Points of sale P.O.S (+24.9% YoY), where the increase was due primarily to an initiative to promote the Latam Miles Program in 1Q18. This venue’s share of total the total monthly transactions average increased to 10.3% in 1Q18 vs. 9.8% in 1Q17.

 

(iv)ATMs (+10.4% YoY), whose growth was in line with the annual expansion posted in the transactions volume. A large portion of this increase was attributable to the fact that the ATMs were equipped with more functionalities to contemplate deposits, balance inquiries and other kinds of non-monetary transactions.

 

Some channels posted a decrease in their transactions YoY: (i) Internet Banking ViaBCP (-24.5%), due to an increase in Mobile Banking, which is now equipped with functions similar to those found in Internet Banking, (ii) Balance Inquiries (-23.4%) and (iii) Tellers (-2.7%), in line with migration to cost-efficient channels.

It is important to note that future growth in banking in the region will primarily focus on digital channels. For this reason, companies at Credicorp continue to strengthen their strategic position in cost-efficient channels. This is in line with Credicorp’s Transformation Strategy and is the driving force of growth in the transactions volume, mainly in Mobile Banking.

(1) Multiple Banking, Current Exchange Rate

(2) Inflation target: 1% - 3%

 

Economic Activity: the economy experienced a smooth political transition, and the new Government will maintain the macroeconomic fundamentals observed in Peru over the past 25 years (for more information, refer to section 10.3 Smooth political transition). We have made no changes to our macroeconomic forecasts despite the change in Government. GDP and Domestic Demand will grow around 3.5% this year, above 2017’s figure, due to:

 

(i)Favorable international environment:

 

§The IMF made no changes to the global GDP growth forecast for this year, which stands at 3.9% (7-year peak).
§The price of copper stands above USD/lb. 3.00 (average price of 1Q18 almost 50% above the same quarter two-years ago); the terms of trade have accumulated 7 consecutive quarters of growth.

 

 43

 

 

(ii)Monetary and Fiscal counter-cyclical policies:

 

§The Central Bank has lowered its reference rate 150bps in the last 12 months, and we do not rule out another 25bps rate cut.
§Public investment mat rebound this year (1Q18: +14.0% YoY) due to the reconstruction process after the El Nino Phenomenon in 2017.

 

Nonetheless, the 3.5% expected growth for this year still faces downside risks, such as the potential under-execution of public investment.

 

Inflation: from its current level of 0.5% YoY in April, inflation is expected to accelerate gradually (negative inflation in 6 of the last 9 months last year) to close the year around 2.5%.

 

Monetary policy rate: since April 2017, the Central Bank has lowered its reference rate by 150bps, going from 4.25% to 2.75%. We do not rule out a final 25pbs rate cut by the monetary institution if inflation takes a surprise downward turn and the economic recovery is not as robust as expected by the monetary institution.

 

Exchange Rate: we maintain our long-held call that the exchange rate will close this year between USDPEN 3.20-3.25 due to sound external accounts (the trade balance may reach a surplus of almost USD 9 billion this year). However, today the balance of risks points toward PEN depreciation, mainly due to external factors (faster increases in international rates, abrupt strengthening of the dollar, and/or drops in metal prices).

 

10.2 Main Economic Variables

 

Economic Activity – GDP (% change YoY)

 

 

Source: INEI

 

Our estimates suggest that GDP expanded around 3.0% YoY in 1Q18. Domestic Demand is expected to have expanded around 4.0% YoY in the same quarter, partially due to rebound in both public (1Q17: -16.4%) and private (1Q17: -5.3%) investment.

Annual inflation closed 1Q18 at 0.4% YoY; this was the lowest figure registered since December 2009 and the first time that inflation has situated in the lower band of the Central Bank’s target range (1%-3%) in the last 8 years. In parallel, core inflation stood at 2.0% YoY, a 5-year low. In this context, in 1Q18 the Peruvian Central Bank lowered its reference rate 50bps, from 3.25% to 2.75% (25bps in the January meeting and other 25pbs at the March meeting). With these cuts, the reference rate has been reduced 150bps in the past 12 months.

 

Fiscal Result and Current Account Balance (% of GDP, Quarter)

 

 

Source: Central Bank

*BCP estimates

 

In 1Q18, the annualized fiscal deficit stood at 3.1% of GDP (2017: 3.1%). Fiscal revenues represented 18.2% of GDP (2017: 18.0%), posting an increase for the second consecutive quarter. In real terms, fiscal revenues advanced 7.2% YoY in 1Q18 due to an improvement in terms of trade. In contrast, public spending stood stable at 20.0% of GDP. In real terms, it increased 6.0% YoY in 1Q18; public investment grew 14.0% YoY.

 

As of February 2018, the 12-month-rolling trade balance registered a surplus of USD 6,283 million. The sound trade surplus is mainly explained by higher exports (+17.2% YoY), led by copper exports (+27.8% YoY). Non-traditional exports also accelerated to 10.0% YoY; this represents the highest level reported since 2012. Regarding imports, the 12-month-rolling imports as of February 2018 increased 11.3% YoY.

 

Exchange rate (S/ per US$)

 

 

Source: Bloomberg

 

In 1Q18, the exchange rate closed at USDPEN 3.227, which implied 0.4% in PEN compared to the figure at the close of 2017 (USDPEN 3.241). During March, the exchange rate escalated to USDPEN 3.28 in a context of high political turmoil prior to the vote on the second presidential vacancy (for more information referred to section 10.3 Smooth political transition). Thereafter, the rate fell to a range between USDPEN 3.22-3.24.

 

 45

 

 

All of the currencies in the region appreciated in 1Q18. PEN’s appreciation (0.4%) was lower than that of CLP (1.9%), COP (6.4%) and MXN (7.5%) but above that of BRL (0.2%). Furthermore, in 1Q18 the Peruvian Central Bank purchased USD 184 million at the start of the quarter (net USD purchases 2017: USD 5,246 million).

 

10.3 Smooth political transition

 

On March 21st Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (PPK), former President of Peru, resigned the presidency amid political turmoil before a second impeachment vote (the first one took place in December 2017). Martin Vizcarra8 (Kuczynski’s Vice-president) assumed the office on March 23rd. On April 2nd. Subsequently, a completely new Cabinet took office, led by Cesar Villanueva9 as Prime Minister and David Tuesta10 as head of the Ministry of Finance (MoF).

 

According to President Vizcarra, the priorities of the government until the end of term (July 28th, 2021) are: fighting corruption, prioritizing health and education, and supporting private investment along with SMEs. The new Cabinet obtained a vote of confidence from Congress on March 2nd. Prime Minister Villanueva announced that the Cabinet will request legislative powers in the topics of economics and finance, reconstruction, fight against corruption, modernization of the State, and protection of violence victims.

 

The head of the MoF, David Tuesta, has commented his intention to:

 

§Bolster fiscal revenues. Some of the initiatives hinted by the government are:

 

(i)revision of tax-exemptions and other tax benefits (according to the national tax and customs agency these represent slightly above 2.0% of GDP),
(ii)the implementation of a ruling to fight tax elusion (it was suspended in 2014 until the MoF established a ruling), and
(iii)possible changes to the excise tax with the objective of collecting PEN 2,000 million.

 

§Optimizing public spending. The MoF announced his intention to cut current expenditures on consulting, recruitment and others for PEN 10,000 million (these have doubled in the past 10 years) in order to execute more public investment.

 

§Increasing potential GDP growth up to 5.0% (the current estimate is 3.5%).

 

The new government will preserve the macroeconomic fundamentals observed in Peru over the past 25 years (prudent macroeconomic policies; trade openness and integration into the world economy; and a legal framework that protects and promotes private investment). It should be noted that the three credit rating agencies have maintained their stable outlook and Peru’s sovereign credit rating has not varied (Moody’s: A3, S&P and Fitch: BBB+).

 

 

8 Martín Vizcarra is an engineer who served as Regional Governor of Moquegua (a mining region in the south of Peru) between 2011-2014. Later, he was appointed as head of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (2016-2017) and Peru’s ambassador to Canada (2017-2018).

9 Cesar Villanueva is congressman from the opposition party “Alianza por el Progreso”, who served as Regional President of San Martin (a region in the Peruvian jungle) between 2007-2013; he was was also Prime Minister in the Humala administration (October 2013/February 2014).

10 David Tuesta holds a PhD in economics and was formerly corporate director of strategic affairs at the CAF Development Bank and chief economist at BBVA Research in the areas of pensions and financial inclusion in Madrid.
