In the financial year ending 2021, the bank posted a pretax profit of Ksh 9 billion  ($ 69,514,173.00).

Kariuki Ngari, Chief Executive Officer, this March said: “We have delivered a strong set of results in 2022, with profit before tax up by 36 percent, with business momentum driving top-line growth of 16 percent.

Our Wealth Management, Transaction Banking, and Financial Markets products performed strongly. I am particularly pleased with our discipline around expenses that helped us navigate the inflationary pressures of 2022 while still allowing us room to invest in our digital capabilities. Our costs were up by 8 percent in comparison to the double-digit growth in income of 16 percent, enabling us to deliver a strong income-to-cost jaw of 8 percent.” 

The increase was due to the reopening of businesses after the COVID-19 pandemic, which fueled demand for loans, and an increase in lending rates, Murgor said.

Net interest income grew by 18% during the period, the CFO  said, while income from transactions increased by 13%.
