Maybank Singapore’s Thilan Wickramasinghe warns that Singapore banks might disappoint when they report their trading update for 1QFY2022 ended March 31 on April 29.

Wickramasinghe attributes the potential earnings disappointment to weak trading income and mark-to-market losses on investment securities, given the substantial macro-volatility during the quarter.
