CI Capital’s investment banking advisory revenues recorded EGP 33.7m.
“During H1 of 2019, the group continued to deliver robust growth in its financing business portfolio which grew 47% y-o-y to reach EGP 9.3bn and was a key driver to achieve solid revenue growth of 35% y-o-y to reach EGP 1.1bn. The investment bank’s performance was negatively impacted by subdued stock market conditions which we expect will improve upon commencing of the monetary easing cycle. The growth in revenues coupled with tight controls on cost has led to a net profit after tax and minority interest of EGP 207.7m, growing 39% y-o-y,” Chairperson and Group CEO, Mahmoud Attalla, commented.
“During H1 of 2019, we have embarked on two new initiatives to expand our financing business offering, namely, mortgage, and consumer finance. Good progress has been made on both initiatives including the hiring of their respective management teams and we are working towards commercial launch before year-end.” he added.
