Egyptian banks were able to weather the pandemic as they entered the crisis relatively well capitalized, and the number of non-performing loans remains low. The pandemic has also helped fuel significant growth in digital banking in a country where only about a third of the population is banked.
Experts say a new banking law, which was passed in 2020 and which increased capital requirements, could promote mergers and acquisitions, while helping to boost financial inclusion. While bank profits have been hit by the slowdown in private lending, experts hope lending will pick up, boosted by currently low interest rates.

Banks are moving quickly to increase digital channels – rolling out more ATMs and POS, while partnering with fintech companies to improve mobile wallet and payment options for customers. Another challenge is that the banking sector remains under-leveraged with a low loan-to-deposit ratio.
