中國銀行業資產質素改善,結構性問題漸現

中國經濟增長穩定及生產者物價指數增速高企,令自2015年起下跌的工業企業利潤重拾起色,企業可以利用收入減輕債務負擔,對銀行亦有所幫助。中國銀行業目前最明顯的問題(即資產質素)略有緩解,但這不代表其他結構性問題同時消失。流動性雖然緊張,最終仍可以透過中國人民銀行放寬貨幣政策解決,但盈利能力下降及有機資本增速不足均為較難解決的結構性問題,儘管資產擴張規模最近減慢,但增速仍然遠遠大於盈利,說明資產負債表還在增長過快。

*收入仍不及資產增速,利息收入改善但只限國有商業銀行*

盈利能力最壞時刻看似已經過去,淨利潤增長從2015年的低點反彈,即使銀行利潤在過去一年左右增速加快,其增速依然沒有趕上資產增長的速度,令資產利潤率(ROA)及資本利潤率(ROE)持續受壓。淨利息收入整體改善,但只限受惠政策分化的國有商業銀行推動,由於資金成本較低,大型銀行穩定了淨息差,中小型銀行則面對更高資金成本,情況正好相反。與此同時,中國銀行業資金成本大幅增加,銀行最近終於看似能夠重新定價利率,但幅度仍然不能補償融資成本的上升。
政策變化亦是關鍵因素,大規模的地方政府債券置換亦增加了銀行投資持有量,但同時銀行取得的利息較以前大幅降低,平均利率大約從置換前的10%下降至2017年的4%,大大加劇了息差壓力。換句話說,這令銀行整體資產質素下降,但代價為盈利能力下降。

*非利息收入增長見頂*

另一方面,非利息收入幫助越來越有限,增速更於佔比依然非常小的情況下見頂,這顯然與影子銀行業務收緊有關,說明銀行於監管下尋找新收入來源更困難,銀行開始轉向信用卡及顧問服務,但顯然不足以抵銷影子銀行失去的收入。
盈利能力下降最終會直接影響償付能力,令中國銀行業越來越難自身產生有機資本,從而逼使銀行尋找其他渠道,在目前監管越來越緊,加上中國仍沒實施總損失吸收能力(TLAC)的情況下,融資需求在未來只會越來越強。

*解決方法還須腳踏實地*

總而言之,透過與整個金融體系分擔風險可以幫助銀行改善資產質素,但實際跟不上銀行資產增長。歸根究柢,銀行如果要真正徹底擺脫由從前信貸狂潮引致的困境,始終需要尋找穩定的資金及收入來源,以重新促進有機資本生成。

The G7 is dead, long live the G7

The summit in Charlevoix left behind a Group of Seven in complete disarray. The authors think that the G-group, in its current formulation, no longer has a reason to exist, and it should be replaced with a more representative group of countries. In this fast-changing world, is the G7 only a relic of the past?

European and Chinese trade competition in third markets: the case of Latin America

While Europe continues to hold important trade powers, the rise of China in the global economy has significantly reshaped international trade and competition. In this paper, the authors show that the degree of competition between both powers in Latin America has risen in the past decade due to China's increased trade of high-quality products. They address whether China is an increasingly relevant competitor for Europe in Latin America and in which sectors China-EU competition is fiercer. These findings should be a wake-up call to Europe in its quest to remain competitive at the global level.

Trade wars: Just how exposed are EU Member States and industries to the US market?

This blog focuses on how a more restricted access to US final demand could affect EU economies and sectors, by measuring their share of value-added absorbed in the US. The exposure of the EU as a whole in value-added terms is lower compared to that suggested by gross exports to GDP and, overall, gross exports misconstrue the picture of spill-overs through trade linkages. For individual countries, the degree to which gross exports overestimate or underestimate exposure is relatively small, with the important exception of Ireland. However, gross exports significantly overestimate the exposure of EU manufacturing to US final demand.
