The banking sector in Malaysia accounted for 4.7% of GDP in 2016, boasting assets worth 198.8% of GDP and a workforce equivalent to 3% of the total employed workers in the country in 2016. The sector was home to 27 commercial, 11 investment, and 18 Islamic banks and a diverse pool of non-bank financial institutions (“NBFIs”). Household loans accounted for 56.8% of all loans extended in 2016. During the year, overall loan growth decelerated, reflecting fragile investor sentiments and a slowdown of the economy. However, the banking system is stable and has been getting ready for the adoption of IFRS 9 in 2018, and the full Basel III framework in 2019. Supported by its banks, Malaysia aims to be a high-value added, high-income, and cashless economy by 2020.
