Detailed SWOT Analysis of United Overseas Bank Limited

Strength

This section is available only in the 'Complete Report' on purchase.

Weakness

1. GMIM division has low profitability: Global markets and investment management provides a comprehensive range of treasury products and services, including future broking, gold products, derivatives, margin trading, foreign exchange, fixed income, as well as an array of structured products.

The Profit segment decreased to 17.1% from $121 million in 1Q13, mainly attributed to higher operating expenses and impairment charges, lower income from trading and interest rate management activities.

2. Possibility of higher loan rates: As per the report published in Business times UOB and HSBC also entered into the mortgage war with the players now in market as DOB and Bank of China. The Rates of Fixed rate loan packages provided by BOC were as 1.48 in Year 1, 1.58 in Year 2, 1.68 in Year 3 whereas the Interest rates provided by UOB were 1.68 for Years 1, 2, and 3 respectively.

Opportunity

This section is available only in the 'Complete Report' on purchase.

Threat

1. Changes in Tax rates: The change of tax rates in the various countries and the tax policies are likely to create threat for UOB on a global platform. The implementation of Polices like GST and the Tax slabs are affecting the Balance sheets and cash flows of Banks.

2. Core earnings likely to affect due to lower interest rates: The core earnings of UOB are likely to affect due to low rates and continuous competition in the market. The interest rate on an amount of $10000 was tending to be 1.50% amounting to an interest of $150 whereas in case of Bank of China it was 2.225% amounting to $ 223 per year.
