Turkish D-SIBs Capital Adequacy Stress Test

Fitch Ratings hosted a webinar on the recently published report “Turkish D-SIBs Capital Adequacy Stress Test”.  The discussion focused on:

  • Loss absorption capacity of Turkey’s eight domestic systemically important banks (D-SIBs) against a rise in non-performing loans, weaker profitability and lira depreciation.
  • Turkish privately owned D-SIBs better positioned than their state-owned peers against a potential marked deterioration in asset quality.
  • Profitability acts as key differentiator, proven to be a key determinant of banks’ performance under the different stress scenarios.

Banks in Emerging Markets Face Headwinds from Economic Slowdown

We forecast economic growth in EMs to soften to 4.5% in 2019 from 5.1%-5.2% in 2017-2018 as evidence hardens of a slowdown in China and elsewhere, including abrupt adjustments in Turkey and Argentina. But we expect EM growth to pick up to 4.8% in 2020 due to policy-easing in China and reduced pressure on EM central banks to raise interest rates, which should help borrowers.
