This survey has been prepared by KPMG Taseer Hadi & Co. and summarizes the performance of selected commercial banks in Pakistan for the year ended 31 December 2014.
Banking sector in Pakistan has been divided in four categories for the purpose of this survey to facilitate comparison of peer groups:
I. Large Banks: Total assets in excess of Rs. 600 billion.
II. Medium size Banks: Total assets in excess of Rs. 125 billion but less than Rs. 600 billion.
III. Small Banks: Total assets less than Rs. 125 billion.
IV. Islamic Banks: All banks carrying out Islamic banking activities only.
“Islamic Banks” have been presented as a separate category and included in their respective category of Medium and Small Banks based on total assets threshold.
The information contained in this survey has been obtained from the published consolidated financial statements of the banks, statistical bulletins published by State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and information published in business magazines and newspapers. Where consolidated financial statements were required and were not available, standalone financial statements have been used.
Reference should be made to the published financial statements of the banks and definitions included in this survey to enhance the understanding of ratios and analysis of performance of a particular bank.
The financial statements of Burj Bank Limited and KASB Bank Limited were not published till the date of our publication, and accordingly not included in this survey.
Comparative figures of 2013 as reported in our Banking Survey 2013 have been updated to correspond with comparative figures reported in 2014 financial statements.
We have tried to provide relevant financial analysis of the banks which we thought would be useful for benchmarking and comparison. However, we welcome any comments, which would facilitate in improving the contents of this survey. The comments may be sent on firstname.lastname@example.org.
