Maybank president and group CEO Dato’ Khairussaleh Ramli attributed the “commendable” first quarter earnings to the robust topline, good deposit growth and stable asset quality.

Ramli added that the results are a testament to the bank’s resilience and focus in executing its M25+ strategy. 
 
“Our leadership in sustainability puts us in a good position to exceed our set targets to deploy sustainable financing and decarbonisation solutions not only to our large corporate customers but also to the mid-sized and small firms,” Ramli said in a press statement, commenting on Maybank’s latest financial results.

In the future, Maybank stated that it will focus on growth areas across group community financial services, global banking, and group insurance & takaful in ASEAN.
