o Loan-to-Deposit ratio remained stable at 81.2% at the end of September 2021

o Non-Performing Loans to Gross Loans ratio was at 5.6% as of end of September 2021 (4.7% as of June 2021)
o Total provision for loans and advances reached AED 6.6 billion and coverage ratio stood at 125.0% as on 30th September 2021 (up from 117.0% in June 2021)
Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair, Chairman of Mashreq Bank, said: “Mashreq recorded a net profit of AED 265 million for the period ending 30th September 2021. The UAE national economy has returned to growth, providing new opportunities for Mashreq across all lines of business.  The continued support from the UAE’s national leadership, as well as significant milestones such as the Expo 2020 and the nation’s upcoming Golden Jubilee, have resulted in a stronger business environment and increased consumer confidence.
Despite the bank’s conservative risk strategy, the bank has been able to deliver robust growth and maintain a comfortable liquidity position, providing fiscal headroom to continue to invest in our most vital asset, our people. Skills development and the encouragement of digital innovation are embedded in our corporate strategy and remain critically important as we build market share to benefit our employees, customers and shareholders.”
Ahmed Abdelaal, Group CEO of Mashreq Bank, said: “Mashreq’s advanced digital transformation program has continued to deliver outstanding service to customers throughout the nine months ending 30th September 2021. Digital platforms supported growth of 7.4% YTD in customer deposits, a liquid asset ratio of 29.5% and a subsequent capital adequacy ratio and Tier 1 capital ratio of 14.4% and 13.3% respectively. 
The bank’s operating profit for 9M 2021 rose by 14.3% to AED 2.4 billion compared to the same period in 2020. This is generated mainly from a 26.2% increase in fee and commission income. These financial outcomes reflect not only the bank’s fiscal resilience but a sustained economic recovery at home and abroad. 
A growing sense of consumer and business confidence within the region has also supported strong growth across Mashreq’s loan portfolio. Total assets increased by 7.0% YTD to AED 169.6 billion and loans and advances increased by 7.6% YTD to AED 77.0 billion. Meanwhile, the bank’s loan-to-deposit ratio remained stable at 81.2% at the end of September 2021.
However, we believe that progress cannot be made without the development of a diverse, inclusive, and enabling working environment. The successful adoption of our ‘work from anywhere’ culture, which we rolled out in 2021 is one such step in this direction. We doubled down on our commitment to Emiratization by investing in young Emirati talent through our internal and external programs - such as our newly launched Al Mustaqbal initiative - which aims to boost the career growth and development of our high potential Emirati talents.”
