AmBank said expenses were well contained at RM494.6mil, down by 8.2%. Cost-to-income (CTI) ratio improved further to 40.0% from 49.3% a year ago.

AmBank Group chief executive officer, Datuk Sulaiman Mohd Tahir said Malaysia’s road to economic recovery continues to be bumpy with the recent resurgence in Covid-19 infections and the reimposition of movement restrictions impacting many businesses.
Amidst these challenging circumstances, the group was able to register a solid overall performance.
“We delivered a 34.2% growth in PBP to RM743.3mi and a 5.9% growth in PATMI YoY to RM386.6mil on the back of RM1.237.9 million in revenue.
“At the same time, we continued to exert cost discipline demonstrated by AmBank’s improved CTI ratio of 40.0%. Indeed, our long-term transformation efforts, from our Top 4 strategy and now continuing into our Focus 8 strategy, has placed the group on a more formidable footing to face the challenging operating landscape.
“While we foresee increased impairment risk to our credit portfolios, this will only become more apparent in the latter part of FY22. Our mitigatory efforts continue to be in place. We are steadfast in our practice of credit vigilance.
