CEO Message

Commenting on second quarter results, Patricio Supervielle, Grupo Supervielle’s Chairman and CEO, noted: "We reported strong results this quarter, underscoring our focus on executing on our profitable growth strategy and more than doubling net income year-on-year to AR$580 million. Net income, excluding non recurring items, increased an impressive 202% year-on-year and 22% quarter-on-quarter. NIM expansion and fee growth, along with efficiency gains were the main drivers behind this robust performance.”

“Economic activity posted a strong pick-up in the quarter, with inflation trending down, while consumption continues to lag behind as is usual in a recovery cycle. In this context, we continued to drive profitable growth expanding higher-margin loans while attracting low cost deposits. At the same time, we maintain a vigilant focus on credit risk, with total NPLs improving YoY and stable QoQ, despite the seasonally higher delinquency rates in consumer finance experienced in the first half of the year. Asset quality tends to normalize during the second half.”

“Providing an outstanding product offering and quality service to our customers is at the core of our business and we were pleased to be named `Best Bank in Argentina' at this year’s Euromoney Awards for Excellence. This award is a reflection of our commitment to offer the best banking experience to our customers through a customized value proposition for our different client segments while developing an integral relationship with our customers.”

“Looking ahead, we remain optimistic in Argentina’s economic recovery which we expect will boost higher growth in loan demand. This, along with our solid performance to-date and the seasonality of our business where, results accelerate towards the second half of the year, leads us to increase our loan growth and net income guidance for 2017. We are also closely monitoring credit risk while pursuing profitable growth as we continue to drive operating leverage as we maximize the opportunities we see in our core businesses - SMEs, middle market, retail and consumer finance.”
