Research and Markets: Egypt Commercial Banking Report Q4 2009.

DUBLIN -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Egypt Commercial Banking Report Q4 2009" report to their offering.

The Egypt Commercial Banking Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, banking associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Egypt's commercial banking industry

We now rate 59 banking systems, and it is little surprise that the developed states dominate the top spots. The US and UK come first and second place, respectively, with scores of 88.7 and 88.0 out of 100. Of crucial importance to both scores is the very high rankings in the crucial 'Risks to realisation of returns Market structure' sub-category, which accounts for 42% of the overall score. The two countries are ranked first and second in this category as well. This sub-category captures the size of the sector, and the potential for assets and loans to grow in US dollar terms. While both systems have been buffeted by the global credit crunch Credit Crunch

An economic condition whereby investment capital is difficult to obtain. Banks and investors become weary of lending funds to corporations thereby driving up the price of debt products for borrowers.
 and will not post stellar growth numbers in percentage terms for the foreseeable future, the sheer size of the US and UK's financial systems means that there is massive potential for deposits, assets and client loans to rise. In addition, the generally solid institutional framework which looks set to be augmented with new post-credit crunch regulations - will continue to provide a firm basis for the sector.

A Mixed Bag For The Developed States

Following just behind the US and UK are a clutch of major developed state economies, including France (82.9, third) and Germany (80.5, fourth globally), Canada (79.9, fifth), as well as Australia and Italy (78.4, joint sixth). All of these sectors have reasonable prospects into the medium term, having a large deposit and loan base, as well as the potential to grow substantially in volume (even if not percentage) terms. However, several states are notable by their absence in this cluster. Austria falls somewhat short (72.4, 12th) of the pack, along with Greece (69.4, 16th), but it is the poor performance of Switzerland (62.7, 26th) and Japan (56.3, 34th) which really stands out. Both states are going to struggle to post increases in asset or loan growth in US dollar terms over the forecast period, to 2013, partially as a result of currency moves to the downside, but also in the case of Switzerland because of the relative weakness of the two key banking groups, UBS UBS Union Bank of Switzerland
