Strong Third Quarter for Banco de Chile With Renewed Growth in Consumer Loans

Michael Miller Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Michael Miller |

Narrow-moat-rated Banco de Chile posted strong third-quarter results, reporting adjusted EPS of CLP 1.82. These results equate to a return on equity of 18.6% for the quarter. With over 75% of the population fully vaccinated, things are looking up for the Chilean economy as it surpasses prepandemic levels. However, political uncertainty remains high, with presidential and parliamentary elections happening in a few weeks and a constitutional rewrite that is expected to be finished by June 2022. Despite the political uncertainty, we believe Banco de Chile will continue to benefit from a growing Chilean economy, and we do not expect a material medium-term impact on the bank’s performance from the political situation. We are maintaining our fair value estimate of $21.70 per ADR share.
