“We are confident that AUB will show accelerated growth on our core lending business as we cater to the needs of corporates and small and medium enterprises. We are making headways in the consumer market, particularly in credit cards, salary and pension loans,” AUB president Manuel Gomez said.

Consolidated gross interest income rose to P8.4 billion, 16 percent up from the previous year. This was primarily due to a 34-percent growth in commercial and consumer loans to P131.1 billion, aided by an 11-percent rise in trading and investments to P615.1 million.
