Navigating through change

The report, themed “Navigating through change”, describes how the regional banking sector is responding to market opportunities and challenges, including those posed by digitalization, changes in the geopolitical climate and regulatory developments.

Covering over 90 percent of the region’s listed banking assets, the report indicates that banks in the region have performed relatively well over the last 12 months, despite margin compression, increased impairment charges and increased funding costs. Whilst overall net profit has declined year-on-year for the first time in recent years, asset growth has remained robust at 6.5 percent on average across the region.
