S&P revises outlooks on 5 Malaysian banks to “stable” from “negative”

Quick Summary AI Powered

FOLLOWING its sovereign rating outlook revision on Malaysia to "stable” from "negative”, S&P Global Ratings has similarly revised the economic risk trend for the Malaysian banking sector to "stable” from "negative” to reflect stabilisation of operating conditions.

S&P expects the controlled increase in NPLs to be manageable given that banks have made significant pre-emptive provisioning over past two years.

Such customers account for about 75% of loans in the commercial banking system.
