Company Note 06/04/2018    144

Share

  • VCB is a well-regarded state-owned commercial bank (SOCB) with an extensive network, a critical role in Vietnam’s national payment system and leading card issuer.
  • Its strong deposit franchise and large client base would support a gradual shift in loan mix to higher-yield segments such as personal lending, in our view.
  • Its asset quality is best in class, with well-controlled NPLs and a high provisioning buffer (NPL of 1.1%, loan loss reserve ratio, LLR, of 131% at end-FY17).
  • We project an enviable net profit CAGR of 17.7% over FY18-20F, with ROE improving to 20.1% by end-FY20F. We initiate with an Hold rating and TP of VND79,500
