09 Shanghai Commercial Bank limited1The consolidated profit after tax of Shanghai Commercial Bank Limited for the first half of 2021 was HK$1,447 million, a year-on-year increase of HK$168 million or 13.1%, largely attributable to a 10.7% surge in net fee and commission income mainly driven by the satisfactory growth in securities brokerage and investment products income, and a lower impairment charge.
