Non-funded income, which encompasses revenue generated beyond traditional interest-based activities, witnessed a remarkable increase of 29.7%, reaching Sh1.3 billion.

The bank’s total assets expanded by 10.7% to Sh145.9 billion, primarily funded by a 19% increase in customer deposits. These deposits were strategically channeled into loans and advances to customers, which grew by 4%, and investments in government securities, which increased by 29%. This strategic allocation of resources ensures a healthy balance between lending, investing, and maintaining liquidity.

The total capital ratio stands at a healthy 16.5%, exceeding the minimum regulatory requirement. This indicates that family bank kenya has sufficient capital to absorb potential losses and maintain solvency.

Additionally, the liquidity ratio remains well above the minimum regulatory requirement at 43%. This ensures that the bank has ample resources to meet its short-term obligations and customer withdrawals.
