Annual Report 2018

The 2018 financial year was a challenging one for the banking industry as a whole. During 2018, the Bank created substantial provisioning for non-performing loans in line with the relevant regulatory requirements and standards, thus increasing the accumulated provision for loan losses to Nu. 1.58 bn (under previous GAAP) and Nu. 1.82 bn (under BAS) as at 31 December 2018, and ultimately increasing provision coverage ratio to 89% of these nonperforming loans. Due to provisioning, profit for the year stood at Nu. 606.85 mn (under BAS) and Nu. 736.19 mn (under previous GAAP) for 2018, as compared with the previous year of Nu. 777.12 mn (under BAS) and Nu. 828.94 mn (under previous GAAP).

Annual Report 2017

2017 can be summarized in a few words: in the face of significant challenges, we made significant progress. As with the changes taking place globally, the banking community in Bhutan too is rapidly evolving due to the changing consumer behavior, integration of technology and the virtualization of the consumer experience. With the growing and changing needs of customers at all levels, it has now become absolutely necessary for banks that look to outshine their peers to focus on the needs of the customer and embrace strong credit cultures.
