BUSINESS SEGMENTS

The Groupís main operating businesses are organized and managed primarily, according to the current organizational structure (Exhibit 29-2). Each segment represents a strategic business unit that caters to the Groupís identified markets. The Groupís business segments are:

  1. Commercial - this segment provides lending, trade and cash management services to corporate and institutional customers, which include large corporate, middle market clients and entrepreneurs;
  2. Consumer - this segment offers consumer banking services to retail customers. Consumer lending products include real estate loans, salary loans, auto loans and pension loans;
  3. Treasury - this segment is responsible for the execution of the Groupís strategic treasury objective set forth in the Groupís Treasury Operating Plan, which outlines the Groupís strategies in terms of proprietary trading, liquidity, risk, capital, tax management, among others. Treasury segmentís functions include managing the Groupís reserve and liquidity position and maintaining its balance sheet by investing in sovereign and corporate debt instruments, commercial paper and other securities in the Philippines and other emerging markets. The Treasury segment is also responsible for managing the Groupís foreign currency exposure, engaging in proprietary trading of currencies and offering foreign exchange instruments to the Groupís corporate customers, as well as the Groupís investment portfolio, which is managed with a view to maximizing efficiency and return on capital;
  4. Branch Banking - this segment offers retail deposit products, including current accounts (interest bearing and non-interest bearing demand deposits), savings accounts and time deposits in pesos and U.S. dollars. Branch banking segment also provides lending to corporate and institutional customers through its own lending centers situated in selected branches; and
  5. Others - this segment includes the Groupís income from trust activities, remittances and gains on foreclosure.

The President, being the Groupís Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM), monitors the operating results of its business units separately for the purpose of making decisions about resource allocation and performance assessment. Segment assets are those operating assets employed by a segment in its operating activities and are either directly attributable to the segment or can be allocated to the segment on a reasonable basis. Segment liabilities are those operating liabilities that result from the operating activities of a segment and are either directly attributable to the segment or can be allocated to the segment on a reasonable basis. Interest income is reported net, as management primarily relies on the net interest income as performance measure, not the gross income and expense.


The segment results include internal transfer pricing adjustments across business units as deemed appropriate by management. Transactions between segments are conducted at estimated market rates on an armís length basis. Interest is charged/credited to the business units based on a pool rate which approximates the marginal cost of funds.
