Margin, provision risk to weigh on top Chinese banks’ earnings in Q4

S&P Global | November 7, 2011

Earnings at major Chinese banks are set to grow more slowly in the fourth quarter as a cooling economy is weighing on lending margins and asset quality.

Extract from the article: "The four major banks are proactively adjusting their revenue structure, focusing on the fee-based business, such as wealth management and credit card services… However, given the sheer size of these banks and their reliance on the traditional interest-based business, which has also grown, the fee-based business is not expected to be the major driver of their top line in the short term”
