In particular, 94% of transactions of individual customers are conducted through digital channels, higher than the figure of 77% in 2022.

Specifically, by the end of 2023, HDBank’s capital adequacy ratio continued to increase to 12.6%, belonging to the leading group; the loan-to-deposit ratio was at 66.2% (the regulated limit is 85%), creating a large room for credit growth in the future without capital pressure; the short-term lending capital ratio for medium to long-term lending was only 22.5% (the regulated limit is 30%), creating conditions to consider increasing medium to long-term loans in order to increase net interest margin (NIM).
