Santander obtiene un beneficio atribuido de 3.616 millones de euros en el primer semestre de 2017, un 24% más

José Antonio Álvarez, Banco Santander CEO.

 

Banco Santander earned an attributable profit of €3,605 million during the first half of 2017, an increase of 24% compared to the same period last year. This was driven by an increase in customer revenues, disciplined cost control, and further improvements in loan loss provisions. Banco Popular, which Santander acquired on 7 June 2017, contributed a further €11 million to the Group’s attributable profit in the period to 30 June 2017, bringing total Group attributable profit to €3,616 million during the first half of 2017 and €1,749 million in the standalone second quarter (+37% compared to second quarter of 2016).
