The Asian Banker Banking Industry Outlook 2019

8 January 2019 | 3:00 - 3:30pm SGT

Despite continued strong growth in total assets, the Asia-Pacific banking sector is still exposed to high levels of private sector leverage. Steps are currently taken to reign in excess debt growth which has led to the moderation of debt accumulation in some markets, such as China and India. Regulators have also intensified efforts to curb the financial and conduct risks that confront banks in the region.
Discussion Agenda:
  • Efforts to curb elevated leverage risks for China and India
  • Cleaning up the balance sheets, particularly in India
  • Spotlight on the alleged misconduct of Australian banks
  • Balance sheet growth
  • Higher capital buffer
  • Stabilised asset quality
