Bottom Line

The decline in gross earnings negatively affected other aspects of the financials and is attributable to a fall in some of its income earning components, largely due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Specta

For example, a fall in income components like investment securities, loans, and advances to customers affected the interest income, while a fall in earnings from treasury bills and foreign exchange trading negatively impacted net trading income.
