Delinquency Rate of Domestic Banks’ WD Loans, August 2019

October 29, 2019

The delinquency rate of domestic banks’ won-denominated (WD) loans—classified as the percentage of loans with principal or interest payment past due by at least one month—as of end-August 2019 stood at 0.50%, up 0.05%p from 0.45% a month earlier but down 0.11%p from 0.61% a year earlier. In August, 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.
