Competition Eases for Banking Sector

Loh Jia Ying, Equity Analyst, Affin Hwang Capital

Competition Eases for Banking Sector

Loan growth is still lagging despite the recent OPR cut by Bank Negara - it grew marginally 0.3% MoM and is expected to remain muted. Competition for deposits will be less intense this year, since the introduction of the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) last year with most banks already in compliance. Budget 2017 is expected to remain as 'people-friendly' as possible which could lead to increased consumption & possible higher lending.
