The Banking Industry in South Africa including Stokvels:

The South African banking industry is regarded as one of the best banking systems in the world and major local banks are highly rated. The industry's image was tarnished by a corruption scandal which resulted in the collapse of VBS Mutual Bank.

South African banks have played a critical role in the coronavirus pandemic response, providing significant financial relief to financially distressed individuals and businesses. While local banks are well capitalised, analysts say that their creditworthiness could be threatened by South Africa's crippling burden of debt. ;


South Africa's retail banking sector is dominated by five JSE-listed banking groups, but with the entry of new banks to the market, the banking landscape is becoming less consolidated and increasingly competitive. Competition has driven down bank charges, particularly on entry-level accounts.

Banks are increasingly investing in digital banking and focusing on product customisation to retain and attract customers. New players do not have the geographical footprint of established banks, but their digital platforms allow them to meet consumers' demand for affordable bank services that are faster and more convenient than traditional banking. ;


The banking industry has been severely affected by the pandemic. Sustained pressure on consumers and businesses due to lockdowns and the expiry of temporary credit relief measures have resulted in a significant increase in non-performing loans. Banks nevertheless remained resilient with capital adequacy ratios well above the statutory requirement. Banks played a role in the pandemic response by providing relief to financially-distressed customers during lockdown.;
