With a 360-degree approach to cyber security, the Bank believes that this is a continuous journey in line with rapidly evolving digital technologies and developments in the external risk landscape.
Risk calibrated growth
The Bank is committed to ensuring long-term risk calibrated growth based on its strategic objectives. The Bank’s performance in fiscal 2019 was aligned to its focus on pursuing this strategy based on opportunities and its risk appetite. The Bank’s core operating profits (i.e. operating profits excluding treasury income) grew by 16.5% in fiscal 2019, led by broad-based growth in domestic businesses. The growth was supported by strong risk management practices leading to further reduction in concentration and improvement in the rating composition of the portfolio. The Bank’s rating mix of disbursements has changed significantly. Over 90% of the disbursements in fiscal 2019 in the domestic and international portfolio were to corporates rated A- and above.
CONCENTRATION RISK MANAGEMENT
Risk is an integral part of the banking business and the Bank aims at achieving an appropriate trade-off between risk and returns
INDEPENDENT GROUPS FOR MONITORING RISKS IN THE BANK
Several independent groups and sub-groups have been constituted to facilitate evaluation, monitoring and reporting of risks. These groups function independently of the business groups.
