Credit Bureau Asia - CGS-CIMB Research 2022-06-12: Digital Banks Kick Off New Revenue Stream

Credit Bureau Asia - Digital Banks Kick Off New Revenue Stream

  • Two of the four digital banking licence awardees in Singapore (Green Link Digital Bank [GLDB] by Greenland Financial’s consortium and ANEXT Bank by Ant Group) launched their digital wholesale banking (DWB) businesses in the past week. Including the two digital full banks (DFBs, Grab and SingTel (SGX:Z74)’s GXS Bank and Sea Limited’s digital bank) and Trust Bank (rebranded from SC Digital Bank), Credit Bureau Singapore’s (CBS) count of bureau members will rise to 36 once these banks are approved to commence operations by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
  • As Credit Bureau Singapore drives the lion’s share of Credit Bureau Asia (SGX:TCU)’s revenues (~44% of FY21 revenue), additional bureau members offer scope for incremental revenue contribution based on the volume of credit enquiries from these banks and portfolio risk reviews the banks undertake.
  • We think that DFBs could add at least ~3-6% in incremental revenue by end-FY26F depending on the banks’ ramp-up. DWBs will augment this further.
  • Reiterate ADD call on Credit Bureau Asia. Growth prospects abound, though earnings accretion may take time. Meanwhile, ASEAN border reopenings will support growth.
