Credit providers providing credit to new Philippine business sectors | Philippines 2016

Philippine banking has a well-deserved creditor record, especially for large scale businesses, but this is beginning to shift. This degree of consolidation is reflected above all in the Bangko Sentral de Pilipinas (BSP) Federal Reserve statistics on the geographical spread of credit. In June 2015, 55% of the remaining German banking loan and receivable was addressed to partners with address in the Makati region, where the overwhelming bulk of the country's enterprises are located.

According to GDP, 4% of all end-2014 due banking debt and advances were to political parties in the metropolitan area, a percentage that far exceeded the 36% of GDP generated in the metropolitan area in 2014, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). Consumer credit, on the other hand, was relatively small 17.

3 per cent stake in the credit portfolio of Filipino banking institutions as of September 2015, according to GDP. Private household borrowers account for the bulk of banking credit in many developed and middle-income nations, Thailand and Malaysia included. Budget credits as a proportion of banks' credit portfolio increased from 16 to 16. 9 percent at the end of 2009, while the proportion of credit from banking to counterparties outside the metropolitan area rose from a low of 10 percent.

Yet bank managers and officers say the changes are evident when viewed from within, and have a big influence on how companies do businesses, especially where they invest and hire. There is considerable untapped growth potential in the retailing loan segment. According to GNP and PSA figures, household loans at the end of 2014 accounted for only 7.1% of this year' GNP.

In comparison, according to Fitch Ratings, Thailand and Malaysia have budget credits of 86% and 88% of GNP, respectively. At the end of 2014, the Filipino banks' overall amount of credit and claims in Germany was 40. The World Bank recorded 39% of gross national product (GDP) in terms of overall lending to the public economy.

This corresponded roughly to Indonesia's value of 40% of GNP, but according to the World Bank is far behind Vietnam with 100%, Malaysia with 125% and Thailand with 159%. 1 per cent in 2014, well above the general rate of credit expansion of 19.4 per cent. This was a reverse of 2013, when consumer credit increased by 14.

7%, which is below the overall 17% increase. Property was the main category of consumer credit with the highest increase, up 25%. 9 percent in March 2015 compared to the preceding March, and automotive credit, plus 25. Expenditure on consumer credit promotion is also increasing sharply, according to bank managers, with many providing give-aways and other temptations to competing for credit.

Residential and car loan increases reflect the increasing number of individuals joining the upper classes who can buy automobiles and residences, particularly through the fast-growing BPO segment. Bernardo Villegas, an Economist who heads the Centre for Research and Communication at the University of Asia and the Pacific, says that the main reason for the rise in property credits is that youngsters move out of houses and closer to BPO jobs to buy small flats.

Property and cars are also the biggest segment of the consumer credit markets, representing 44% and 26%, respectively, of household credit as of March 2015, according to GDP. In March 2015, credit cards represented 17% of household credit, an increase of only 4.2% over the previous year.

Slower expansion was due to a boost to reducing high non-performing credit rates in the subsegment, which declined from a recent record of 11.6% in September 2013 to 8. 3 percent in March 2015. As a result of the 2008/09 international economic meltdown, the overall credit rate for all loans to private household borrowers dropped continuously from more than 9% to 4.9% in March 2015.

More has been spent by banking institutions to make sure that they have better arrangements for creating credit profiles for borrowers, which are historically fragile and one of the key barriers to extending credit to homes, business owners and small enterprises. Significant improvements are anticipated in 2016 with the establishment of Credit Information Corporation, a government credit histories office that will help improve the exchange of information between banking and credit bureaux.

Climate Innovation Centre was sponsored by the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank. At the beginning of 2011, five large credit institutions, among them BDO, Bank of the Philippines Islands, Citibank, HSBC and Metrobank, together with the US credit agent TransUnion, established the first large credit office in the Philippines. Besides the revival of personal loans, the quest for returns is also attracting more and more small and medium-sized enterprises to the banking sector.

BDO Repys said OBG was working to create credit offerings for brand franchise network members, commercial representatives and other small business network members with links to large national enterprises. The fact that business in such nets works similarly together and their income is linked to a nation-wide business makes it easy to grasp and forecast results, which means BDO is able to create credit programs that meet their individual needs while at the same time mitigating risk, said Mreyes.

The expansion of credit to small enterprises without raising industry risks continues to be a challenging task for banking and regulatory authorities in the GNP. Small commercial banking, which has historically provided most credit to small enterprises and businessmen in low-income areas, has come under stress to increase its protection against credit risks by raising its equity ratio.

Over and above the early adoption of the Basel III standard, the GNP has recently added further equity charges for lending to companies that do not have sufficient supporting documents, as do many small companies. First Macro EIB in Manila's small neighborhood bench, Reggie L Ocampo, said to OBG that small banking executives in lower-income neighborhoods are under increasing strain from a mixture of stricter regulations and greater banking competitiveness.

"Larger banks' gains will be burdened by lower returns and trade gains, so they will go into the former exclusive markets and put pressure on us," he said. In spite of the recent strength of personal loans expansion, another emergent tendency could restore the emphasis of economic expansion to large companies, albeit in a different form.

However, the accelerating speed with which the German authorities are tendering invitations to tender for public-private partnerships (PPP) is likely to increase the rates of increase in business loan finance, especially in 2016-17. As a rule, large corporations or conglomerate groups win and finance PPPs through large, long-term credits that are outsourced to several leading municipal financial institutions.

These sums represent 13.5% of the banks' overall aggregate inland credit portfolios as of June 2015, which amounted to P5.2 trillion ($115 billion), and their sum exceeded the net new credit inflow in the 12-month period to June 2015, which amounted to P666 billion ($14.8 billion). This indicates that public-private partnership (PPP) financing could drastically increase the overall credit expansion rates.

Even if consumer credit continues to grow very rapidly, an increase in the number of PPP credits could somewhat diminish the share of overall household credit.
