Oman Banking & Financial Services Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

Like the rest of the economy, Oman's financial services sector is dealing with the impact of lowoil prices, weighing on the industry's short-term growth and development prospects. Nonetheless, efforts todiversify and upgrade the country's financial infrastructure should reap longer-term benefits, with strongpotential for growth particularly in the relatively undeveloped insurance and Islamic finance markets. Thebanking sector dominates the industry now, and will do over the forecast period, with the strength of largelocal groups - alongside the government's 'Omanisation' programme - likely to remain a barrier to entry forforeign players.

Oman's banking sector is set to continue expanding over the forecast period, though loan growth will betempered in the short term by falling public demand for credit. In the years to come, the rise of Islamicbanking in the country will present considerable opportunities for some players, but also increasinglychallenge the status quo, offering headwinds to the growth of more established banks. The regulatoryframework is relatively robust, ensuring local banks comply with international best practices for riskmanagement and financial stability.
