Thanachart Bank Public Company Limited (TBANK) reported a net profit of 3,540 million baht for the third quarter of 2018, up 1.8% compared to the same quarter last year and 9.9% higher year-to-date vs. the same 9 month period in 2017.

Mr. Somjate Moosirilert, Chief Executive Officer and President of Thanachart Bank Public Company Limited, said, "TBank and its subsidiaries continue to demonstrate strong sustainable earnings growth despite higher tax burdens this quarter as its tax shield was fully utilized.

The CEO summarized that "Making the customer our #1 priority has proven to be a resilient and rewarding strategy that has helped our Bank deliver top quartile earnings growth. This performance was achieved with a strong risk culture that was recently recognized by Fitch Ratings, who upgraded Thanachart Bank's National Long-Term Rating to 'AA-' from 'A+'.
