Cal Bank records 3.9% growth in profit to ¢215m in 2021
CalBank recorded a marginal 3.9% year-on-year growth in profit in 2021 to ¢215 million, despite the impact of COVID-19 on the Ghanaian economy, particularly in the first half of the year.
With the exception of interest income which it witnessed a decline in growth, it registered growth in all its income lines – net fees and commission and net trading income.
The drop in interest income from ¢519.6 million in 2020 to ¢465.3 million in 2021 was as result of a high interest expense on the profitability statement.
