The Malaysian economy experienced an impressive growth rate amidst global uncertainties last year as the economy is projected to grow at a healthy 5% this year. This economic robustness coupled with Bank Negara’s prudential oversight and industry compliance has made the Malaysian banking industry a solidly consistent performer. Regular stress tests have supported the healthy financial state of Malaysian banks. However, the banking sector is expected to face new challenges this year.
