After a difficult 2019, 2020 proved to be even more challenging for the banking industry in Argentina. The COVID-19 pandemic led to a deep economic slump, with GDP plunging by 9.9% in 2020. Several industries such as tourism, hotels and restaurants were severely hit by the national lockdown implemented in March 2020 that remained in place for several months. The banking sector showed remarkable resilience in this difficult context, with the share of non-performing loans decreasing in 2020 compared to 2019. However, a contraction in the industry’s loan portfolio and increased exposure to low interest rate notes by the Central Bank determined a considerable decline in the banking sector’s profit margins, with both ROE and ROA plummeting. As the economy recovers in 2021, it is expected that profitability will slowly return to previous levels.
