Retail Banking: Africa

Countries covered: Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia

Author: Lafferty research

Publishing date: May 2014

The retail banking sector in Africa has proven largely resilient to the spill-over effects of the global financial crisis. In addition, a number of impressive developments in the region have helped Africa's retail banks to thrive, including a tightening of banking regulations in a number of economies, a reduction in barriers to entry into the retail banking sector and a growing capacity to supervise and regulate complex banking structures.

Retail Banking: Africa provides insight into the growth of the retail banking industry at a regional and national level — including data, commentary and analysis of key retail banking indicators — and looks at how the landscape is changing in terms of infrastructure, local customs, technology, product development and acquisitions.

The report covers Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia.
