Performance has rebounded in the Kuwaiti banking and financial sectors after a number of years repairing the damage caused by the 2007-08 global financial crisis. Banks’ balance sheets show that net profits, assets, loans and deposits are all growing strongly, and financial metrics look robust, while various industry assessments show that it is well capitalised. This chapter contains a roundtable with Adel Abdul Wahab Al Majed, Chairman, Kuwait Banking Association; and Vice-Chairman and CEO, Boubyan Bank; Michel Accad, Group CEO, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait; and Elham Y Mahfouz, CEO, Commercial Bank of Kuwait; and an interview with Mohammad Y Al Hashel, Governor, Central Bank of Kuwait.
