Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January - November 2021

Moscow, Russia - 27 December 2021. TCS Group Holding PLC (LI: TCS, MOEX: TCSG) (the "Group"), Russia's leading provider of online financial and lifestyle services via its Tinkoff ecosystem, today announces Tinkoff Bank's unaudited RAS financial highlights for January - November 2021.


For the eleven months of 2021, net income stood at RUB 46.9bn versus RUB 30.5bn in January - November 2020.


It should be noted that the RAS net income figure is not a reliable indicator of IFRS net income for the same period. There is a very low correlation between financial results under the two reporting standards as a result of significant accounting differences. Therefore, RAS figures should not be used as the basis for conclusions on forthcoming IFRS results. 


The gross loan portfolio amounted to RUB 643bn representing an increase of 54% y-o-y. The net loan portfolio amounted to RUB 556bn having increased by 61% y-o-y and constituted 50% of total assets (44% at year-end 2020). 


Retail customer accounts stood at RUB 718bn. Tinkoff Bank continued to retain substantial liquidity: the CBR N2 ratio stood at 73% (minimum requirement: 15%), and the CBR N3 ratio was 128% (minimum requirement: 50%). Retail customer accounts constituted 74% of total liabilities.


Total assets increased by 46% y-o-y to RUB 1114bn.


As of 1 December 2021, total capital including retained profits (based on Form 123) amounted to RUB 187.4bn. The CBR N1 capital adequacy ratio was 14.2%. Core Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.1) was 9.6% and Main Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.2) was 14.3%.


In September 2021, TCS Finance D.A.C. successfully issued USD 600,000,000 6.00% perpetual callable loan participation notes and on-lent the proceeds from the issue to Tinkoff Bank. Following CBR approval, the issue was included into the calculation of Tinkoff Bank's statutory capital ratios starting November 2021.


Note on RAS results


Please note that the figures in this press release are calculated in accordance with Tinkoff Bank's internal methodology which is available at:               



RAS results are not a reliable indicator of IFRS results due to significant accounting differences that make a direct read-across from RAS to IFRS results impossible. The main differences between RAS and IFRS are:

  • Consolidated results under IFRS include a number of additional items and results of its subsidiaries
  • Accrual of expenses under IFRS
  • Timing differences in accounting for restructured loans ('instalments') and loans going through courts
  • The effect from the revaluation of currency derivative instruments
  • The effect of deferred income tax.
