Jakarta, November 1, 2022 - PT Bank BTPN Tbk (Bank BTPN) recorded year-on-year (yoy) net profit growth of 18% in January-September 2022 as Bank BTPN managed to maintain the momentum of national economic recovery amid global uncertainty.
Bank BTPN's net profit after tax (consolidated) attributable to owners of the parent company increased to Rp2.418 trillion during January-September, compared with Rp2.046 trillion in the same period last year.
"Bank BTPN's impressive net profit growth is inseparable from the optimism of public members and business players towards economic growth and the trust from our customers toward Bank BTPN amid high inflation and the uptrend of bank interest rates," said Bank BTPN President Director Henoch Munandar.
Bank BTPN's net profit growth was mainly contributed by an increase in operating income and a decrease in cost of credit.
Operating income rose 4% yoy, supported by net interest income that increased by 4% yoy to Rp8.669 trillion at the end of September 2022 and a 5%-yoy rise in other operating income. Net interest income was up because of a 23% rise in loans in the corporate segment and an 11% increase in sharia financing.
Meanwhile, cost of credit fell 19% yoy to Rp1,294 trillion. "We’ll continue to monitor customer credit quality and maintain loan-loss provisions at an adequate level," said Henoch.

Bank BTPN's credit growth was higher than the average credit growth in the banking industry, which stood at 11% yoy at the end of September 2022, according to Bank Indonesia data.
Credit growth also pushed Bank BTPN's assets up 9% yoy to Rp199.90 trillion at the end of the third quarter of 2022.
Bank BTPN managed to keep credit quality at a healthy level, as reflected in the gross non-performing loan (NPL) ratio of 1.41%, down from 1.56% reported in the corresponding period of last year and lower than the industry average of 2.88% at the end of August 2022.
Bank BTPN maintained the amount of third-party deposits at a level sufficient to meet credit funding needs and Bank BTPN’s liquidity needs. Bank BTPN's third-party deposits increased by 1% yoy to Rp103.88 trillion at the end of September 2022.
