St George chases earnings growth of 10 per cent

St George Bank said it expected growth in earnings per share of 10 per cent in each of 2006 and 2007. The bank reported 16 per cent increase in full-year net profit to $828 million for 2005. The bank said there would be “continued moderation in home loan credit growth” but she said this would be offset by “solid growth in business lending”.
