Operating income and net profit

MashrekNet profit has soared to AED 5.8 billion for the nine months of 2023, a substantial increase of 122% year-on-year. This performance is attributed to our successful growth strategy, commitment to customer excellence, strong operational performance, efficient cost management and prudent risk management capabilities.

Return on equity (ROE) hits an all-time high of 32.1% in 9M 2023, doubling compared to 9M 2022.

The increase in operating income and net income is primarily attributed to a significant 82% increase in net interest income. This growth is the result of several factors, including our balance sheet expansion, healthy customer margins and the prevailing high interest rate environment. Furthermore, our non-interest income reached AED 2.3 billion, representing a notable year-on-year growth of 8.1% in the nine months of 2023.
