DBS Group - Maybank Research 2023-03-10: Strengthening Franchise; High Structural ROEs; Rising Dividend Yield.

DBS Group - Strengthening Franchise; High Structural ROEs; Rising Dividend Yield.

  • DBS (SGX:D05)’s strong execution since 2010 has structurally shifted their sustainable ROEs higher. This should support a higher trading multiple going forward, in our view.
  • In the near term, NIMs are set to remain higher for longer, although y-o-y growth could taper. A revival of wealth management fees could help partially offset this.

This was thanks to the massive rate hikes by the Fed and regional central banks where the Group’s asset yields rose around +78bps y-o-y, whereas funding costs expanded just +52bps. Its superior funding franchise helped, but here, CASA has eroded to 60% of deposits from 76% a year ago.
