The dominance of local banks in Thailand is evident from the fact that they accounted for 91.5% of total assets and 94.0% of total deposits in 2019. While local Thai banks have been consistently growing their asset base, since 2014 foreign banks have seen a contraction. Thus, although they outpaced local bank asset growth in 2019, the total asset base of foreign banks remains lower than its pre-2014 levels. It was an eventful year in 2019 for the sector, as the BoT introduced loan-to-value (LTV) restrictions on mortgage lending in April to curb the increase of household debt, and resorted to two policy interest rate cuts of 25bps each in the latter half of the year to combat the economic slowdown stemming from the US China trade tensions. The sector also saw activity on the M&A front, with one domestic transaction (the TMB-Thanachart merger) and one international one with Bangkok Bank buying an 89.1% stake in Indonesia’s PT Bank Permata.
