Riyadh – Mubasher: Riyad Bank registered a 15.8% annual drop in net profits during 2020 at SAR 4.7 billion, compared with SAR 5.6 billion in 2019.
The fall in the bank’s annual profits was driven by a rise in total operating expenses by 23.8%, resulting from a higher net impairment charge for credit losses and other financial assets and investments, according to a bourse disclosure on Sunday.
This hike was partially offset by an increase in total operating income by 4.6%.
Meanwhile, the bank’s assets grew by 16.7% last year, standing at SAR 310.09 billion from SAR 265.8 billion a year earlier.
