Annual Report 2021

Strong economies need strong banks. This is true not only because finance is the lifeblood of economic prosperity, but also because the way banks facilitate that finance can have positive effects for society too.

C.S. Venkatakrishnan - Group Chief Executive Officer Review

This has been a strong first half with Group income up 17%1 to £13.2bn and a RoTE of 10.1%.

The broad-based income growth that we achieved in the first quarter continued across all three operating businesses into the second quarter.

Our performance in the first half shows the resilience and advantage that diversification at all levels brings, both across the bank and within our businesses. It also underlines the value of investment into our three strategic priorities in next generation consumer finance, sustainable growth across the Corporate and Investment Bank (CIB), and the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Profit before tax was £3.7bn, and attributable profit was £2.5bn, after absorbing charges net of tax of £0.6bn relating to the Over-issuance of Securities.

We are alert to the pressure that the rising cost of living will have on our customers and colleagues. We have a range of measures in place to help and are looking to do more. With our resilient income growth and balance sheet strength, we can provide that support while distributing excess capital, having announced a half year dividend of 2.25p per share and an intention to initiate a further share buyback of £500m.

1 Excluding the Q222 income benefit of £0.8bn from hedging arrangements related to the Over-issuance of Securities, Group income was up 10% to £12.4bn.
