The focus on short-term consumer finance and a cheap source of funding through deposits with low rates has significantly increased margins of Argentine banks in recent years. But the situation is showing signs of change. The sharp slowdown in consumption, which is holding back the most dynamic segment of the loan portfolio, and increased funding costs due to the higher rates that banks pay on deposits in a context of strong expectations of a further devaluation of the peso, is beginning to create a new scenario for the banking industry in Argentina. In addition, the slowdown of the economy is driving more government interference in the sector. However, although profitability will fall slightly compared to the levels seen in recent years, the financial system will remain solid and little exposed to a possible deepening economic crisis.
