About the report

COVID-19 has dramatically reshaped the world in which we live, with tumultuous economic and financial effects running alongside the public health emergency. At the height of the outbreak, banks across the globe played, and continue to play, a fundamentally important role supporting businesses and families by administering government- backed loans, providing additional liquidity and rapidly installing forbearance measures. In many ways trust in banks is at an all-time high.

The report provides key discussions on the performance and trends of the 1st Half of 2020, focusing on the COVID-19 implications on various areas of the businesses and the importance of the approach to “Anticipate tomorrow, but deliver today”.
