Find Banking and Financial Services expertise in Pakistan


Pakistan’s financial sector has gone through systemic changes since the 1990’s, when most banks were state-owned. A policy of privatisation began in 1991 and most of the major banks were privatised. The largest banks in Pakistan Muslim Commercial Bank, Habib Bank, United Bank and Allied Bank were all state owned until recently. Since 2002, Pakistan has also witnessed a surge in Islamic Banking. This is partly due to financial incentives such as tax exemption for a limited period for Islamic Banks. The sector is diverse, in 2012 the State Bank of Pakistan’s list of registered financial institutions consisted of: five public sector banks, four specialised banks, 17 private banks, five Islamic banks, seven foreign banks, nine microfinance institutions, and eight development finance institutions.
