Key Investment Ratios

  • In this report, the financials of Jaiz Bank for the period ended 30th September, 2020 are analysed and compared with numbers released in the corresponding period of 2019 to establish growth, projections and valuations accordingly.
  • Unlike its industry peers, rather than charging interest on loans, operates a profit-sharing policy, which is why it does not report any figure as Loan. Although this is a highly risky business approach, it guarantees higher profits and reduces non-performance with a strong risk management team.
  • We must however commend the outstanding growth achieved by the management of Jaiz Bank despite the poor business environment that poses serious challenges to loans. Though we have maintained conservative valuation approach for Jaiz, we are of the opinion that, should the profit growth be sustained through the year, it will attract a better valuation.
