Good Execution At Credicorp Canceled Out By Political Risk

Credicorp had a mixed quarter on weakness in insurance and higher opex meant to grow the business further down the line, but spread income and loan growth were positives. Credit quality continues to improve, and Credicorp management solidified their good reputation by acting quickly and conservatively on reserving early in the cycle. Digitalization remains a significant long-term opportunity for Credicorp, and customer utilization has improved as a result of the pandemic. The election of Pedro Castillo has created turmoil in the Peruvian economy and market, with considerable uncertainty over how much of the Marxist campaign rhetoric will become actual policy/law. Credicorp is undervalued on a long-term core earnings growth rate of 7% and mid-teens ROEs, but there is very high uncertainty and risk around the macro and regulatory environments.
