The report, delivered in 1993, found the key cause of financial distress was the non-performing assets of the bank, its loan portfolio. The non-performing assets were corporate and property-related loans made by the bank.
At the time of the bailout, non-performing assets exceeded 30% of the loan book. The report found that ‘to a lesser extent’, its investments in major subsidiaries acquired between 1985 and 1990 also performed poorly and were a contributory cause.
However, the Auditor General made it clear that while external factors were causes of the bank’s poor financial position, ‘a contributing cause was the bank’s failure to adequately manage the debt, capital, interest rate risk and liquidity risk of the bank.
The report indicated that the bank’s ‘policy and procedural inadequacies, and the lack of effective supervision and control of certain of the bank’s activities, contributed to the mismanagement of the business of the Bank as a whole.
