Preliminary result 2023: Hamburg Commercial Bank continues strong track record with pre-tax profit of EUR 427 million

Hamburg Commercial Bank AG (HCOB) presented its preliminary figures for the 2023 financial year on Thursday. With net income before taxes of EUR 427 (363) million, up 18% on the previous year, the bank continues its strong track record. The robust pre-tax result was mainly due to a further noticeable increase in operating income, solid new business and stringent cost management. Thanks to high recurring earnings and prudent risk provisioning policy, HCOB clearly surpassed the previous year’s pre-tax result and earnings forecast (around EUR 350 million), and this despite a difficult macroeconomic environment featuring geopolitical uncertainties and challenging developments on the real estate markets in the wake of higher interest rates. HCOB’s capital and liquidity positions remained at a high level.
