Customer Deposits continued to see strong increase of 19% during the first semester 2013 to Rp91.1 trillion from Rp76.6 trillion in the first semester last year. Our strategy in leveraging our existing clientele base in Retail Banking, Business Banking and Global Banking by optimizing cross sell and encouraging referrals has yielded positive results in growing our customer deposits. In addition, our transformation project to improve branch sale productivity has also shown positive traction in generating deposits.

Global Banking (**) loans have returned to the growth track with 2% increase from Rp23.3 trillion to Rp23.9 trillion after the decrease in first quarter this year as a result of portfolio adjustment to proactively manage credit risk.

Comments by BII’s President Director, Dato’ Khairussaleh Ramli:
"We managed to book respectable performance in the first six months 2013, in line with industry expectation. In the second quarter loans grew strongly by 6.8%, after a decline in the first quarter. Our transformation program continued to bear positive results that augur well for our long term sustainability. Going forward, whilst we applaud the preemptive actions to stem inflation by hiking interest rates, we can expect that loans growth will be affected for both the industry and for ourselves. However we remain optimistic for the financial year of 2013 as we emphasize on asset quality and manage our cost more effectively and be responsible in growing our book and leveraging our business synergy with the Maybank Group.”
“To support Maybank Group customers which have business dealings and transactions in India, on 10 July we re-activated the operations of Mumbai branch, India. The operations of BII in Mumbai will open up new potential business opportunity for BII as India is considered one of the fastest growing economies globally. BII Mumbai will enhance both BII and Maybank Group’s presence beyond the ASEAN region”.
“Our capital position has been strengthened with the equity injection by our shareholders. The strong capital base will augur well for us in increasing our asset growth. We are pleased that our shareholders are committed to the long term growth strategy and potential for BII as an institution by subscribing to their rights entitlements.”
Comments from President Commissioner BII and Chairman of Maybank Group, Tan Sri Dato’ Megat Zaharuddin bin Megat Mohd Nor:
“The overall improved financial performance for the first six months amidst the challenging economic condition demonstrates the resilience of the Bank and prove that the Bank is built upon solid fundamentals.
