During 9MFY24, Return on Assets (ROA) increased by 0.94%, rising by 7 basis points (bps) from 9MFY23. The Return on Equity (ROE) for the same period reached 19.47%, marking an 88 bps improvement from the previous fiscal.

SBI’s Performance in July-September Quarter of FY24

SBI’s performance in the July-September period (Q2 FY24) showed a notable 8.0% rise in standalone net profit, reaching Rs 14,330 crore, along with a 12.3% increase in Net Interest Income (NII) to Rs 39,500 crore.

Anticipated Outcomes

The decline aligned with analysts’ expectations. According to Shreyansh Shah, a Research Analyst, ‘We anticipate positive Q3FY24 results from SBI, despite a slight expected dip in Net Interest Margins (NIMs) due to ongoing high fund costs. We project the bank’s overall profitability to experience a substantial double-digit growth this quarter, driven by robust advances supported by increased infrastructure spending. Additionally, the bank’s significant presence in salary accounts suggests that the CASA and CD ratio should remain stable. This quarter’s standout performance is anticipated in the notable growth of other income, thanks to the bank’s strategic focus on leveraging its extensive network of 22,405 branches for cross-selling opportunities.”
