in PLN M

Amounts due to customers were growing rapidly in 2019 to reach PLN 116,661.1 million at the end of the year, compared with PLN 102.009.1 million at the end of 2018 (+14.4%). From the perspective of funding cost, in 2019 we observed a continuation of a positive trend reflected in higher dynamics of inflows to current accounts than to term deposits.
Amounts due to retail customers rose by PLN 11,740.8 million, i.e. 17.8% compared with the end of 2018. Current and saving accounts increased by 20.3%, while term deposits went up by 8.6%.
Amounts due to corporate clients increased by PLN 2,791.6 million or 7.9% in 2019, driven mainly by higher volumes on current accounts (+14.9%). Term deposits of corporate clients increased by 1.1% in 2019. The total growth of corporate deposits was partly offset by a drop in the value of repo transactions (-75.4%) and in the amount of loans and advances received (-13.8%), triggered largely by a partial repayment of loans from the European Investment Bank. Excluding repo transactions, amounts due to corporate clients rose by 9.6% compared with the end of 2018.
Amounts due to other banks slid by PLN 1,942.0 million, i.e. by 62.5% compared with the end of 2018 and at the end of 2019 reached 1,166.9 million. The strongest decline was recorded in repo / sell buy back transactions, whose value decreased by 87.5% compared to the end of 2018. A decrease was also reported in loans and advances received (by 74.6%) and funds from other banks placed on accounts with mBank.
The share of debt securities in issue in mBank Group’s funding structure decreased from 12.4% at the end of 2018 to 11.0% at the end of 2019. This change is attributable mainly to the issuances and redemption of bonds under the EMTN programme and covered bonds of mBank Hipoteczny.
In 2019, subordinated liabilities grew by 1.1% year on year, which was caused by the impact of the PLN depreciation (vis-a-vis the Swiss franc) on the PLN equivalent of the subordinated loan with a nominal value of CHF 250 million.
Total equity went up by PLN 982.1 million (+6.5%) in 2019 as a consequence of an increase in retained earnings, while its share in total equity and liabilities of mBank Group amounted to 10.2% at the end of 2019 (compared with 10.4% as at the end of 2018).
