SINGAPORE (Sept 26): United Overseas Bank’s near-term loans growth is not expected to be affected by trade war and property cooling measures, say analysts.

Between 10-15% of UOB’s loans book is trade related with the bulk anchored out of South-East Asia. UOB has the largest percentage of Singapore loans (2Q18: 52% of total loans) compared to DBS (47%) and OCBC (41%), and the least exposure to Greater China loans (2Q18: 15% of total loans) as compared to DBS (16%) and OCBC (26%).

Hence, analysts do not expect the trade war to pose significant risks to trade loans growth unless it escalates into an overall global slowdown.
