UnionBank treasurer and CFO Jose Emmanuel Hilado said the bank’s performance is because of solid fundamentals, a healthy loan portfolio, and steady margin recovery. Trading gains also contributed to the income increase.

UnionBank President and CEO Edwin Bautista said the bank’s digital strategy was key as they scale up their businesses “while maintaining lean operations.” The bank has been steadily embracing the digital shift, including allowing the opening of bank accounts via the UnionBank mobile app and even accepting checks via the app as well.
