In the first half of 2021, our total income grew by 17.1% and our net profit grew by 33.4%. Since Lufax’s inception, we have always been in close and constant dialogs with the regulatory authorities to fully grasp the latest regulatory trends, intentions, and requirements. By establishing and maintaining constructive relationships with a multitude of regulatory authorities in all relevant aspects, we have been able to synchronize our own operations with policy changes. Based on our own analysis of regulatory intentions and industry competition, we have decided to gradually shift our business focus from volume growth to quality enhancement and uphold three principles: to keep our operations fully compliant with regulations, to provide increasing value to small and micro business owners as well as the middle class, and to empower our business development with technology advancement. While we are cognizant of the challenges ahead, we are also confident in our own ability to deftly navigate through changing market dynamics and lay a unique path to long-term and sustainable success.”

Mr. Gregory Gibb, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Lufax, commented, “On the back of our solid financial performance, abundant cash reserves, and strong net cash flow, we are able to meet any new capital requirements that may come from regulatory changes, reward our shareholders by adding another US$700 million to our existing share buyback program, and continue to allocate more capital towards enhancing our unique business model. What sets Lufax apart from our peers is our unparalleled O2O direct sales force, our distinctive way of deploying business licenses, and our full range of financial services beyond lending. We are confident that our combination of capital strength, differentiated business model, in-depth financial credit experience, and commitment to regulatory compliance will enable us to remain resilient in a rapidly changing operating environment.”

Mr. James Zheng, Chief Financial Officer of Lufax, commented, “Our second quarter 2021 results are characterized by strong business growth, continued operations improvement, and expanded profit margins. Our total income grew by 17.3% year over year to RMB14.8 billion, and our net profit increased by 53.2% year over year to RMB4.7 billion. We maintained our momentum by continuously optimizing our unit economics, growing our loan volume, improving our business mix, executing a more sustainable risk-sharing model, enhancing our asset quality, and substantially completing the run-off of legacy P2P products. While we ramped up our total income excluding investment income by 19.1% year over year, we also managed to reduce our total expenses excluding credit impairment losses, financial costs, and other losses by 1.7% year over year, showcasing our efficiency in most areas. As of June 30, 2021, our total equity had reached RMB91.1 billion, and we had approximately RMB42 billion liquid assets9 maturing in 90 days or less. Looking ahead, we will continue to balance prudent cost controls with healthy business expansion to deliver lasting shareholder value.”

  • Technology platform-based income decreased by 7.5% to RMB9,601 million (US$1,487 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB10,374 million in the same period of 2020 due to the decrease in retail credit facilitation service fees, partially offset by the increase in wealth management transaction and service fees.
    • Retail credit facilitation service fees decreased by 8.8% to RMB9,194 million (US$1,424 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB10,084 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to a change in revenue mix driven by the evolution of the Company’s risk-sharing business model.
    • Wealth management transaction and service fees increased by 39.9% to RMB407 million (US$63 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB291 million in the same period of 2020. The increase was mainly driven by the year-over-year increase in fees generated from the Company’s current products and services.
  • Net interest income increased by 98.7% to RMB3,227 million (US$500 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB1,624 million in the same period of 2020, mainly as a result of the Company’s increased usage of trust funding channels that are consolidated by the Company. As of June 30, 2021, the Company’s on-balance sheet loans accounted for 27.8% of its total loan balance under management as compared to 15.6% as of June 30, 2020.
  • Guarantee income increased by 868.5% to RMB891 million (US$138 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB92 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in the loans for which the Company bears credit risk.
  • Other income increased by 205.1% to RMB1,071 million (US$166 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB351 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to the increase of account management fees, collections, and other value-added service fees charged to the Company’s credit enhancement partners as part of the retail credit facilitation process.
  • Investment income decreased by 83.2% to RMB37 million (US$6 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB220 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to fair value losses from investments.

TOTAL EXPENSES

Total expenses increased by 2.2% to RMB8,477 million (US$1,313 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB8,291 million in the same period of 2020. Total expenses excluding credit impairment losses, financial costs and other losses decreased by 1.7% to RMB7,107 million (US$1,101 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB7,229 million in the same period of 2020 due to cost reductions in multiple areas.

  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 6.3% to RMB4,316 million (US$668 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB4,606 million in the same period of 2020.
    • Borrower acquisition expenses decreased by 19.5% to RMB2,643 million (US$409 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB3,283 million in the same period of 2020. The decrease was mainly due to 1) increased sales productivity and decreased sales commissions, and 2) the higher base in the second quarter of 2020 due to the accelerated recognition of amortized selling expenses from loans originated in prior years as the result of early repayment by customers.
    • Investor acquisition and retention expenses decreased by 15.5% to RMB169 million (US$26 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB200 million in the same period of 2020 mainly due to the optimization of investor acquisition channel costs.
    • General sales and marketing expenses increased by 33.8% to RMB1,503 million (US$233 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB1,123 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the lower base in the second quarter of 2020 as a result of the social security relief during the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • General and administrative expenses increased by 21.1% to RMB798 million (US$124 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB659 million in the same period of 2020. This increase was mainly due to the lower base in the second quarter of 2020 as a result of the social security relief during the COVID-19 outbreak as well as the Company’s headcount expansion in the second quarter of 2021 to support its new business development efforts, which included the development of the Company’s consumer finance business.
  • Operation and servicing expenses decreased by 3.3% to RMB1,476 million (US$229 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB1,527 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to decreased in post-origination management expenses, driven by improvements in the Company’s management and collection efficiency. The decrease was partially offset by the increase in trust plan management expenses, which resulted from the increase in consolidated trust plans.
  • Technology and analytics expenses increased by 18.6% to RMB517 million (US$80 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB436 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to the Company’s ongoing investments in technology research and development.
  • Credit impairment losses increased by 133.5% to RMB1,394 million (US$216 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB597 million in the same period of 2020, due to the increase in the proportion of credit risk born by the Company as a result of its continued migration to a risk-sharing model while the credit quality indicators continued to stabilize and in some cases improve substantially from one year previously.
  • Finance costs decreased by 37.4% to RMB276 million (US$43 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB441 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to the decrease in the balance of convertible bonds and the increase in interest income resulting from the increase in deposits.
  • Other gains increased to RMB301 million (US$47 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from a loss of RMB25 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to the foreign exchange gain in the second quarter of 2021.

NET PROFIT

Net profit increased by 53.2% to RMB4,729 million (US$732 million) in the second quarter of 2021 from RMB3,086 million in the same period of 2020, driven by the aforementioned factors as well as a reduction in the effective tax rate to 26% in the second quarter of 2021 from 29% in the same period of 2020.

EARNINGS PER ADS

Basic and diluted earnings per American Depositary Share (“ADS”) were RMB2.00 (US$0.31) and RMB1.86 (US$0.29), respectively, in the second quarter of 2021.

1The take rate of retail credit facilitation business is calculated by dividing the aggregated amount of retail credit facilitation service fee, net interest income, guarantee income and the penalty fees and account management fees by the average outstanding balance of loans facilitated for each period.

2High-quality borrowers refer to G1-G3 borrowers. The Company groups its qualified borrowers into eight risk levels, with G1 representing the lowest risk and G8 representing the highest risk among qualified borrowers. A borrower’s risk level is determined based on two primary considerations. The First is credit risk score, modeled using statistical techniques and based on the records of the Credit Reference Center of the People’s Bank of China and the borrower’s prior records such as repayment, delinquency and application histories. The other consideration takes into account the customer’s assets, such as residential property, vehicle and insurance policies. Borrowers with higher credit risk scores and better assets will be assigned a lower risk level.

3 Flow rate estimates the percentage of current loans that will become non-performing at the end of three months, and is defined as the product of (i) the loan balance that is overdue from 1 to 29 days as a percentage of the total current loan balance of the previous month, (ii) the loan balance that is overdue from 30 to 59 days as a percentage of the loan balance that was overdue from 1 to 29 days in the previous month, and (iii) the loan balance that is overdue from 60 to 89 days as a percentage of the loan balance that was overdue from 30 days to 59 days in the previous month. Loans from legacy products and consumer finance subsidiary are excluded from flow rate estimation.

4 DPD 30+ delinquency rate refers to the outstanding balance of loans for which any payment is 30 to 179 calendar days past due divided by the outstanding balance of loans. Loans from legacy products and consumer finance subsidiary are excluded from calculation.

5 DPD 90+ delinquency rate refers to the outstanding balance of loans for which any payment is 90 to 179 calendar days past due divided by the outstanding balance of loans. Loans from legacy products and consumer finance subsidiary are excluded from calculation.

6 Legacy products of the wealth management business refer to a variety of products and related services that the Company has historically offered but no longer offers, primarily due to shifts in strategy and regulatory requirements. Legacy products are primarily comprised of certain types of structured alternative products originated from financial institutions and peer-to-peer platforms.

7 As of June 30, 2021, client assets in legacy products were RMB0.4 million, representing overdue balances to be paid out by insurance companies.

8 The take rate for the wealth management business is calculated by dividing total wealth management transaction and service fees for current products by average client assets in the Company’s current products.

9 The liquid assets consist of Cash at bank, Financial assets at amortized cost, Financial Assets purchased under reverse repurchase agreements and Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss with a maturity of 90 days or less as of June 30, 2021.
