Diamond Trust Bank Financial Results
Diamond Trust bank recorded a 51% dip in profits for the year ended 31st December 2020 to Kes 3.5 billion from Kes7.3 billion in 2019.
The bank’s total assets crossed the Kes 400 billion thresholds for the first time, rising by 10% to Kes 425 billion at the end of 2020, with customer deposits growing from Kes 280 billion to Kes 298 billion over the year.
The bank’s after-tax profits dipped by 51% to Kes 3.5 billion last year. The bank attributed the performance to the prudent approach it adopted by making stringent provisions of Kes 7.3billion against the loan book in 2020, a reflection of the elevated credit risk environment prevalent since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in March last year.
