South Africa Banking Sector Report 2019/2020

An AFRISCAPER Insights Industry Report
Release Date: March 2019
Pages: 76
Available in: English

In South Africa, there are 36 South African banking institutions and 30 foreign banks with approved representative offices in South Africa registered with the South Africa Reserve Bank. There are over 6,000 credit providers registered with the National Credit Regulator. Despite this, the industry remains highly concentrated with the five largest banks holding 91% of total assets.

The banking landscape is changing rapidly as banks face increasing competition from technology-based financial services – from newly established banks to retailers offering mobile transactional banking accounts. Competition coming from recently-licensed commercial banks and growing credit granting from other credit providers is likely to encourage the big banks to place increasing emphasis on growing customer numbers with innovative product offerings, especially to attract lower-income earners.
