Major LatAm banks see lower return on risk-weighted assets in Q3

Eleven of the 21 biggest banks in Latin America saw their return on average risk-weighted assets, or RORWA, decline year over year in the third quarter of 2019, according to an analysis by S&P Global Market Intelligence.

The RORWA is an indicator of how well a bank is generating income for the risks it has taken.

Among the group, Grupo Financiero Citibanamex SA de CV recorded the biggest drop in its RORWA, falling 135 basis points to 3.55% in the quarter.

In contrast, Grupo Financiero Galicia SA's RORWA jumped 652 basis points to 11.71%, the largest return among the sample. The bank's profit for the third quarter soared 175%.

Meanwhile, Chile's Banco BICE had the smallest RORWA at 0.54%.
