Credit institutions and credit financial intermediaries

Chapter 4. Credit institutions and credit financial intermediaries

The figure of net profit (column 6) (following the same criterion of the tables in Chapter 4) includes the sum of the profit or loss of each deposit-taking institution taken individually. This figure is highly influenced by the segregation process of the savings banks' banking business to newly-created banks. Given that a significant portion of the shares of these new banks are part of the savings banks' investment portfolio, the results recorded by the banks to which the business has been transferred, are transmitted to savings banks' results, amplifying the figure of aggregate net profit (or loss) of the deposit-taking institutions as a whole. In order to facilitate interpretation of the amount of net profit (column 6), the quantity of said net profit which is due to impairment losses on investments has been added as a memorandum item (column 13).
