Top Banks in the Philippines, ROE Sep 2012

ROE means Return on Equity
ROE is the ratio of net profit to average capital
ROE = net income divided by shareholders equity

We like our banks to gain profits so they can continue to operate and grow successfully through generations.

But we also like them to balance profitability with humanity.
Sabi nga nila: MODERATE THE GREED.

It is not good for a bank to post a high ROE if:

  • It makes customers wait for hours, regardless of whether they’re standing or given seats 
  • Its ATMs are always OFFLINE 
  • Its penalties are major profit sources 
  • Its transaction fees are much higher than those of other banks
  • Its loan interest rates do not reflect current market rates
  • It goes around banking laws, such as the not-clearly-worded dormancy/maintaining balance law 
  • It gives the littlest of interest earnings to depositors 

We SALUTE profitable banks that share their blessings to communities in the form of:

  • Scholarships
  • Awards programs for teachers, soldiers, etc.
  • Donations during disasters
  • Donations to government hospitals and shelters 
  • Entrepreneurship programs
  • Poor-community development programs
  • Other programs that make the Philippines a better place
