Banking Banana Skin

THE BIGGEST risk of the banking and financial sector in Slovakia is underrating risks when trying to achieve set goals. This is one of the findings of the latest CSFI’s biennial Banking Banana Skins survey, produced in association with PwC. The poll was based on responses from more than 650 bankers, banking regulators and close observers of the banking industry in 59 countries, including Slovakia. The survey shows snapshots of the risk landscape in the financial services sector.

THE BIGGEST risk of the banking and financial sector in Slovakia is underrating risks when trying to achieve set goals. This is one of the findings of the latest CSFI’s biennial Banking Banana Skins survey, produced in association with PwC. The poll was based on responses from more than 650 bankers, banking regulators and close observers of the banking industry in 59 countries, including Slovakia. The survey shows snapshots of the risk landscape in the financial services sector.

“The Slovak response showed a different order of concerns from the global ranking,” said Radoslav Ratkovský, manager and specialist for financial sector in PwC Slovakia, adding that the ranking was created based on the responses of banks in Slovakia. “The leading risks are focused on the strength of banks: the availability of capital, credit risk and the tendency to under-price risk in response to the forces of competition. Concern about derivative risk remains high. All this in an uncertain economic environment in Europe.”

On the other hand, there was less concern in Slovakia about the burden of regulation and political interference, which dominated the global rankings. Other risk areas that ranked lower included technology risk and the associated risk of crime and cyber-crime.
