The Banking sector has been one of the outperformers and more resilient sectors on Bursa Malaysia this year as the KL Finance Index is up 6.8% versus broader FBMKLCI decline of 6%. This has been lifted by a series of cumulative OPR hikes resulting in better Net Interest Margins and in turn Return on Equity However, competition in the banking space is also getting more intense especially in CASA.
