1Q24 results a beat

  • 1Q PIOP rose 14% y-o-y, underpinned by a 23% y-o-y jump in fees while other non-interest income rose 24% y-o-y.
  • Wealth management, cards and loans-related fees were key fee income drivers while stronger treasury customer sales drove other non-interest income. Do note that the strong y-o-y growth also reflects the inclusion of Citi Taiwan (since 3Q23) and a non-recurring S$100m FX hedging gain from its overseas books.
  • Net-interest income was up 7% y-o-y on 2% loan growth and a 2bps y-o-y net-interest margin expansion while opex grew 11% y-o-y.
  • Specific provision charge was contained at just 10bps (vs 17-20bps guidance).
