In 2017, the return on equity will be above the cost of capital for the group and for each business unit.
The plan reflects contributions from the whole bank and addresses all business drivers (revenues, costs, risk, capital and liquidity).
The plan prioritises more fee-intensive businesses, ready for a potentially prolonged period of low interest rates.
Profitability increase will be ensured, preserving a low risk profile, through new growth engines (“new growth bank”) and full value extraction from existing business (“core growth bank”).
