Bangladesh Banking & Financial Services Report Q4 2017

BMI View: Bangladesh's financial sector remains on the brink of crisis due to one of the world's highestnon-performing loan (NPL) ratios and continued need for state bail-outs for the state banking sector. Thelevel of bad debt within the banking system has increased and asset quality is likely to remain poor over thecoming quarters. We expect profitability to remain weak as banks will face increasing pressure from thecentral bank to rebuild their loan loss provisions amid rising NPL rates. Low lending rates will also weighon bank profits. Monsoon flooding has merely added to the woes experienced by the Bangladeshi bankingsector with the affected population and businesses compromised in their ability to repay debt. Furthershocks - political, economic and external - could push the financial sector over the edge with contagionfrom state bank failure leading to a systemic crisis.

The financial sector's contribution to the Bangladeshi economy's total gross value added (GVA) wasestimated at just 3.8% in 2016 and is set to rise only modestly over the forecast period, reaching 4.1% by 2026.
