Profitability Analysis in the Egyptian Banking Sector
AbstractThe paper is analyzing current problems of the Egyptian banking sector, which is dominated by public banks. The reported problems include a massive proportion of non-performing loans in the banks’ credit portfolios as well as significant profitability problems, especially in the public banks. Some empirical data is gathered using a bank-specific Return on Equity-Analysis. Results support the reported problems and also show some structural weaknesses of both public and private banks.
