Our key forecast revision relates to impairments as a lower underlying charge partly compensates for ’lower for longer’ House Price Index (HPI)-related releases. The latter is inextricably linked to elevated non-performing loans (NPLs), and PTSB is looking to develop the next phase of its NPL strategy during 2017. Completion of mandated deleveraging and robust capital leaves it well placed to pursue its sustainable commercial and profitable growth ambition; however, dividend prospects will be dictated by further NPL reduction and the final Targeted Review of Internal Models (TRIM) outcome.
