Kuwait Commercial Banking Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

Kuwait is home to one of the oldest financial centres in the Gulf area. The development of the sector has been hampered since the 1960s and other countries in the region have outpaced it in a number of areas, mainly due to an inadequate regulatory framework. With recent regulatory reforms, increased government spending and a revised strategy, the industry is expected to grow in the coming years and challenge its peers in the areas it lacked previously.

We expect credit growth to boom in the next 12 months within the banking sector. There has been a record number of projects currently under effect that would create numerous corporate lending opportunities and that might also increase non-performing loans (NPLs). The industry has been remarkable in terms of keeping NPLs at a low rate, but with the projected increase in corporate loans, we anticipate a rise in defaults within the sector.
