UAE banking sector is the largest by assets in the GCC region; the sector is dominated by 23 local banks, which account for more than 75% of banking assets; 28 foreign banks account for the remainder

Both bank loans and deposits are growing, with deposits growing at a faster pace compared to loans and advances

In the past couple of years, the Central Bank of the UAE has sought to play a stronger role in the oversight and governance of the banking sector in the UAE

This has resulted in a new regulatory regime with various regulations being considered covering areas such as liquidity risk, large exposures and mortgage caps
