Pakistan Banking Survey 2016

Banking sector in Pakistan has been divided in four categories for the purpose of this survey to facilitate comparison of peer groups:

  1. Large Banks: Total assets in excess of Rs. 900 billion.
  2. Medium size Banks: Total assets in excess of Rs. 150 billion but less than Rs. 900 billion.
  3. Small Banks: Total assets less than Rs. 150 billion.
  4. Islamic Banks: All banks carrying out Islamic banking activities only.

“Islamic Banks” have been presented as a separate category and included in their respective category of Medium and Small Banks based on total assets threshold.

Further, summarized financial information of “Islamic Banking Branches of Conventional Banks” has also been presented to have an idea about size of Islamic Banking in Pakistan.

Reference should be made to the published financial statements of the banks and definitions included in this survey to enhance the understanding of ratios and analysis of performance of a particular bank.
Comparative figures of 2015 as reported in our Banking Survey 2015 have been updated to correspond with comparative figures reported in 2016 financial statements.

We have tried to provide relevant financial analysis of the banks which we thought would be useful for benchmarking and comparison. However, we welcome any comments, which would facilitate in improving the contents of this survey. The comments may be sent on
