  • (1888PressRelease) March 23, 2011 - Emerging Markets Direct released their latest Malaysia Banking Industry Report 1H11.

As of September 2010, total assets held by financial institutions in Malaysia amounted to RM1, 508.57 billion, a record growth of 10.12% y-o-y. Commercial banks represent the largest segment of all financial institutions in Malaysia (total asset at RM1, 192.84 million), with Maybank taking up 27.18% of the local market share and ranking first domestically.

    About 55.61% of total loans in the Malaysian banking system is driven by the household sector (eg.

    The banking system remains very stable with ample liquidity to meet demands for deposits withdrawals. In the third quarter of 2010, deposits saw a growth of 8.90% y-o-y, which was mainly derived from financial institutions, businesses and individuals. The loan-to-deposit ratio as well as the financing-to-deposit ratio were rather stable and remain at 81.3% and 87.8% respectively.
