We expect a continuation of Q1’s positive trends in Irish banks’ upcoming H1 results, with recovery in loan growth and income. Asset quality should remain robust in contrast to last year’s provision increases, but H1 may be too early to see reversals occur due to ongoing restrictions and upcoming phased withdrawals of state supports. Recent valuation weakness is at odds with the changed prospects in a sector context – we expect H1 to shed further light on what continues to be the key catalyst.
