Pag-IBIG posts P20.48 B income in H1 2022, up 27 percent
Pag-IBIG Fund posted earnings of P20.48 billion in the first half of 2022, an impressive 27 percent increase compared to the same period last year, its top officials reported today, 8 August.
From January to June, Pag-IBIG Fund’s gross income reached P32.19 billion, while net income amounted to P20.48 billion. Compared to the same period last year, gross income grew 19 percent and net income rose 27 percent, driven mainly by earnings from its housing and short-term loans (cash loans), and trading gains.
“Pag-IBIG Fund continues its strong performance this year,” said Secretary Jose Rizalino L. Acuzar of the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD), who serves as chairperson of the 11-member Pag-IBIG Fund Board of Trustees. “The double-digit increase in our income figures proves that we remain one of the best-performing government corporations in the country today. This places us in a strong position to continue providing social services and help more Filipinos gain better lives, in line with the directive of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.”
Acuzar added that as of June, Pag-IBIG Fund also posted record highs in both home loan releases and membership savings collections. The agency has so far released P51.96 billion in home loans to finance the acquisition of 47,184 homes for its members during the first half of the year. Savings from its members, on the other hand, reached P38.82 billion, strongly driven by the agency’s popular MP2 Savings where members have collectively saved P19.40 billion.
Pag-IBIG Fund Chief Executive Officer Acmad Rizaldy P. Moti emphasized that the agency’s gains shall redound to the benefit of its members. He noted that under its charter, Pag-IBIG Fund is mandated to return at least 70 percent of its annual net income to its members in the form of dividends that are credited to their savings.
“Pag-IBIG Fund is wholly owned by the Filipino workers,” said Moti. “That is why it is our responsibility, as the administrators of the Fund, to manage their contributions responsibly and excellently. With our second half prospects in terms of loan releases and collections high, we are optimistic that we will achieve at least P30 billion in annual net income level for the sixth consecutive year. This is our commitment to our members.”
