Delinquency Rate of Domestic Banks’ WD Loans, July 2019

September 24, 2019

The delinquency rate of domestic banks’ won-denominated (WD) loans—calculated as the percentage of loans with principal or interest payment past due by at least one month—as of end-July 2019 stood at 0.45%, up 0.04%p from 0.41% a month earlier and down 0.11%p from 0.56% a year earlier. In July 2019, the amount of newly delinquent loans exceeded that of resolved loans, which led to the month-on-month increase in the delinquency rate of the domestic banks’ WD loans.
