Standard Bank indebted to property companies:
Recently released 2021 financial statements for the financial services group show that the company has extended N$12,7 billion in mortgage loans. The company made a profit of N$371 million for the 2021 financial year and shareholders’ cut was 31 cents per share for the whole year. The deal is, however, still subject to regulatory approvals from the Bank of Namibia, the Namibian Competition Commission, and the South African Reserve Bank and can only be implemented after these approvals have been received.
How much of an effect does this have on local property manager’s?
