  • Among the different financial intermediaries, multiple banking stands out for the reactivation of credit granting, with manageable levels of delinquency and maintaining high levels of capitalization and liquidity.
  • Although economic activity in Mexico continues with its recovery process, financing has not yet reached its pre-pandemic levels.
  • Both the corporate and household sectors maintain bounded levels of indebtedness. The interest expense of the former, and the credit level of the latter, compare favorably with their peers in emerging markets.
  • The stress tests confirm the resilience of the Mexican financial system in the face of potential credit, liquidity and climate change shocks.
