Banking Banana Skins 2014

Risks and opportunities: What's keeping Malaysian bankers on their toes

PwC once again joins forces with the Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation (CSFI) to explore what risks bankers worldwide are facing in the current climate and how they prioritise them.

The resulting report, Banking Banana Skins 2014 describes the risk outlook for the banking industry at the turn of the year 2014 during the period of recovery from the global financial crisis. Read the full report here.

The Malaysian cut of the report reveals some interesting findings including the list of key concerns among bankers which are somewhat different from those of their global counterparts.

It also looks at the level of anxiety among Malaysian bankers and how well prepared they think banks in Malaysia were in dealing with the risks identified.

There were 10 respondents from Malaysia, comprising bankers, observers (non-bankers like academicians and analysts) and risk managers.
