Muscat: The Iraqi banking sector is set for significant earnings and asset growth over the next decade driven by a strong macro environment, increasing credit penetration and the improving security situation in the country, according to a new report on Iraq’s banking sector released by Sansar Capital Management.

With the International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasting Iraq’s GDP to grow at a rate of 9 per cent in 2013, the banking sector in particular is expected to maintain steady growth over the next few years.

The Sansar Capital report points out that rising credit penetration is also expected to further fuel banking sector growth. The report cites a World Bank study which shows that Iraqi domestic credit to GDP stood at a mere 9 per cent of GDP at the end of 2011 as compared to a 55 per cent of GDP average for the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

Domestic credit to GDP grew at a clip of 89 per cent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) between 2009-2011. Moreover, according to Central Bank of Iraq data, cash credit, such as loans and overdraft facilities, have grown at an impressive CAGR of 50 per cent from 2006-2011.

The detailed report analyses the Iraqi private banking sector through the perspective of five of the country’s largest private banks by deposit. The report reveals that buoyed by strong economic growth and rising credit penetration, these five banks saw their aggregate net income grow by 207 per cent between 2010-2012.

Dilution driven by increases in equity capital resulted in EPS growth to be lower.



We know that a certain site is emailing today that you all should call banks -many different banks, and ask a bunch of questions…We have just been informed from  “Someone in the know” that to PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE BANKS….

[justaguy] I talked to my banker and he said I don’t have to sign an NDA, but I do have to pinkie promise.


7-16-13 FLPatriot59: This just in folks – pls treat as a rumor as everything else until it is CONFIRMED: “they are testing the global reset AS WE SPEAK! If all passes, we should have our global reset between 10pm – 2am EST.”

All of the tail-tell signs of the GCR are in play. Parliament, CBI, all the 3-letter agencies here in the USA are saying the IQD is going to be international. No doubt in anyone’s mind that the IQD will pass Kuwait; high rates quoted ($5-6) are not high.

Maliki has actually said this is to happen and happen now. The articles are over – nothing left to write or report from articles.

Contact at WF today on call earlier today. Banker said his particular WF branch is not handling the CE. Atlanta has a lot. Some locations in NC are. Not every branch will. They are finalizing the last minute steps of the security at the CE locations.

The GCR is complete and has been going thru the system since 8PM last Friday. As of today nothing has changed per the contact. Based on all the info (not-guru info only), the RV is now here.

IMF contacts have told us they are right in line with the other info and they are saying it is happening right now.

7-15-13 Iraq Business News:  American-based private equity firm Carlyle Group is reported to be looking for opportunities in Northern Iraq.

A report from Dow Jones says the move comes as a result of a new $750m fund that the company hopes to raise to invest in the Middle East and North Africa.

The firm, which is expected to begin informal talks with investors after Ramadan, has been one of the few buyout firms to remain active in the region in recent years.
