HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
Jordan's banking sector has historically moved from strengh to strengh, posting impressive results along the way despite political and economical instability affecting the region. This growth was a consequence of effective and efficient management practices and a well regulated opertaing enviroment spearheaded by the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ). Banking in Jordan traces back to the early 1900's with the establishment of the "Ottoman Bank" in 1925. Soon after, the largest commercial Palestinian bank "The Arab Bank" was relocated to Amman as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli war and a number of local and foreign banks subsequently started their operations in Jordan. Deposits and loans more than doubled between the mid-1970's and the early 1980's Benefiting from favorable economic conditions, the banking sector has undergone major progress, as deposits and loans more than doubled between the mid-1970's and the early 1980's. During the same period the number of financial institutions tripled. The government encouraged the expansion of banking services as a key driver to its economic development policy and took a number of measures to enhance it, beginning with the deregulation of interest rates in 1988, which helped attract deposits from other Arab nations and remittances of many Jordanians who had never used banks before. By the mid-1980's, Jordan was the only Arab country in which the value of banks' assets exceeded its GDP. In the past decade, the numbers posted by the sector were no less than impressive; total commercial bank assets rose from JD12.9 billion in 2000 to JD30.1 billion until the end of August 2008 while total deposits increased from about JD8.2 billion to JD16.0 billion during the same period. By the end of 2007, the top 3 banks in Jordan controled 76.9% of total customer deposits while holding 71.6% of total sector assets The Jordanian banking sector is considered overbanked as it currently consists of 24 banks including 16 locally licensed ones, three of which are Islamic, serving a population of 5.8 million. By the end of 2007, the top 3 banks in Jordan controled 76.9% of total customer deposits while holding 71.6% of total sector assets, therefore, and in an effort to force banks towards further consolidation, the CBJ raised the minimum capital requirements for banks to JD40 million in 2004. However, the ease in which banks where able to raise new capital was a stumbling block in the path to a less fragmented banking sector, for that reason the CBJ is considering raising the minimum capital requirement to JD100 million in upcoming years.

THE CENTRAL BANK OF JORDAN (CBJ)


The CBJ was established in 1964 as an independent corporate body replacing the Jordan Currency Board which had been established in 1950. The capital of CBJ, which is wholly owned by the government, was increased gradually from JD1 million to JD18 million. The objectives and functions of the CBJ are: 1) Issuing and regulating bank notes and coins: The CBJ is the sole issuer of the Jordanian currency to meet the needs of the national economy and maintains an adequate inventory of these notes and coins for the same purpose. 2) Maintaining and managing the Kingdom's reserves of gold and foreign exchange: The CBJ is responsible for determining the suitable

investment opportunities as well as setting ratios and components of the reserves. 3) Acting as a banker to banks and a fiscal agent to the government and public institutions: The CBJ acts as a banker and fiscal agent to the government and public institutions as it manages their monetary transactions. 4) Acting as a banker to banks and specialized credit institutions: The CBJ is engaged in several transactions with licensed banks in addition to issuing licenses authorizing banks to operate and branch in Jordan. 5) Maintaining the safety of the banking system: One of the major roles of the CBJ is the supervision of the banking system to ensure its soundness and to protect depositors and shareholders. 6) Advising the government on the formulation and implementation of fiscal and economic policies: The CBJ issues recommendation and suggestions relating to the prevailing economic, financial and monetary conditions. 7) Managing monetary problems and participating in containing local economic problems: The CBJ adopts procedures and measures to deal with economic problems and avoid their adverse effect on the economy. 8) Regulating credit: The CBJ regulates the quantity, quality, and cost of credit to meet the requirements of economic development and monetary stability. 9) Other roles: The CBJ has also actively participated in the establishment of a number of financial institutions and corporations.

THE JORDANIAN ECONOMY


As of the third quarter of 2008, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at both constant and current market prices grew by 6.5% and 27.0% In spite of the many challenges the Jordanian economy faced during 2007, highlighted in the significant increase in international oil prices, the economy continued its growth drive, albeit at a slightly slower pace compared to the past few years. As of the third quarter of 2008, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at both constant and current market prices grew by 6.5% and 27.0%, compared with 6.6% and 10.5% respectively during the second quarter of 2007.

Inflation in Jordan rose rapidly in the past three quarters, with the consumer price index surging by 15.4% until November 2008 compared to 5.4% during the same period last year. This sharp increase in the prices of good and services was mainly driven by external factors, the most significant of which was the skyrocketing prices of oil which, combined with the removal of fuel subsidies, left Jordan's population exposed to surging fuel prices. However, oil prices have fallen steeply since July 2008 and these favorable oil prices will help the Kingdom relief from inflationary pressures caused by fuel imports. On the level of public finance, the state budget, including grants, showed a deficit amounting to JD381.6 million in the first three quarters of 2008 against a surplus of JD84.9 million during the same period in 2007; however when foreign grants are excluded the real budget deficit surged to JD874.6 million compared to a surplus of JD63.8 million in 2007. On a different note, gross domestic debt reached JD5.291 billion by the end of September 2008 compared to JD3.181 billion for the same period in 2007. CBJ's foreign currency reserves rose by JD422.1 million, or 8.3%, during the first ten months of 2008 to reach JD5.494 billion On the monetary front, the CBJ's foreign currency reserves rose by JD422.1 million, or 8.3%, during the first ten months of 2008 to reach JD5.494 billion compared with their level at the end of 2007. In addition, domestic liquidity (M2) increased by JD850.0 billion, or 56.8%, during the first 10 months of 2008 compared with the same period in 2007. The value of national exports grew by 39.2% and the re-exports by 38.9% in the first ten months of 2008 to stand at JD3672.1 million and JD956.1 million respectively. On the other hand the value of imports has risen by 32.2% to stand at JD10.303 billion during the same period. In light of the above, the Trade balance deficit, calculated as the value of total exports minus the value of imports, grew by 27.0% during the first ten months of this year reaching JD5.675 billion compared to JD4.467 billion during the same period last year despite the increase in exports and re-exports.

Moody's
According to Moody's Investors Services, the fundamental credit outlook for the Jordanian financial system is stable According to the latest report released by Moody's Investors Services in December 2008, the fundamental credit outlook for the Jordanian financial system is stable, reflecting the good operating environment and the banks' solid financial fundamentals. However exposure to the struggling real estate and volatile local equity markets, the large concentration of banks relative to the size of the economy, in addition to tightening international credit conditions are causes for concern. Moody's also rated some of the banks in Jordan using Bank Financial Strength Rating (BFSR). The results can be summarized as follows:

SECTOR PERFORMANCE
Fuelled by a booming economy in the past few years, Jordan was exposed to an abundance of liquidity and increased investment which brought about unprecedented performance for all the banks in the sector. Operating revenues soared, deposits and credit facilities increased and investment portfolios generated phenomenal revenues, leading to an overall expansion of the sector.

Assets
In the period from 2000 to 2007, Jordanian banks' assets grew by 107.7% During 2007, the banking sector recorded impressive results led by the favorable economic conditions, where aggressive economic expansion resulted in increased demand for capital thus enabling banks to increase their profits and assets base. In the period from 2000 to 2007, Jordanian banks' assets grew by 107.7%, increasing from JD12.9 billion to reach JD26.8 billion. Banks' assets continued their growth in the first ten months of this year to reach JD39.7 billion by the end of October.

As of the end of October 2008, the total credit facilities extended by the banking sector totaled JD13.3 billion

As of the end of October 2008 the total credit facilities extended by the banking sector totaled JD13.3 billion. Moreover, the asset quality of Jordanian banks has been on the rise, mainly as a result of a booming economy and an expansion in retail lending.

Moreover, the following pie chart demonstrates the distribution of the credit facilities among different economic sectors in 2007, where the general trading, construction and the industrial sectors made up 50.7% of the total value of credit facilities.
Credit Facilities Extended by Sector 2007

General Trade 22%

Construction 17%

Transportation services 3% Tourism Hotels and Resturants 2% Public Services 7%

Industry 11%

Mining 1% Agriculture 1%

Other 33%

Financial Services 3%

The general trade sector came in the first place accounting for 21.55% (JD2.435 million) followed by the construction sector with 17.19% (JD1.942million) and the industrial sector which accounted for 11.93% (JD1.348 million) of the total direct credit extended. The increase in lending by banks was a natural consequence to the changing scene in the Jordanian economy. The overall boom in the kingdom resulted in an increase in deposits which in turn enabled banks to increase the amount of facilities they could grant to debt-thirsty companies and individuals who resorted to financial institutions for financing their projects and needs, while successfully maintaining comfortable ratios of deposits to facilities. Average capital adequacy ratio for banks in 2007 stood at 21% As shown in the graph below, average capital adequacy ratio for banks in 2007 stood at 21%, higher than CBJ's recommended ratio of 14%, while nonperforming loans to total loans ratio remained stable in the past three years.

As for the first 10 months of 2008, deposits reached JD17.8 billion increasing by 11.5% over 2007 year-end figures.

Profitability
Jordanian banks' managements have taken a big leap forward in terms of efficiency and effectiveness evident by the soaring profitability in recent years, indicating a better utilization of assets on hand.

During 2007, the overall profit of ASE listed banks grew by 14.9%; it further grew by 22.1% in the first nine months of 2008

During 2007, the overall profit of ASE listed banks grew by 14.9% to reach JD639.74 million, it further grew by 22.1% in the first nine months of 2008 to reach JD781.3 million. The following chart depicts the profitability of the listed banks in the past 6 years.

Going forward, we believe that banks' profitability will be affected by higher credit costs, in addition the decline in the stock market which will be translated into lower brokerage fees, mark-to-market losses and lower trading income.

THE BANKING SECTOR ON THE ASE


The banking constituted 55% of the total market capitalization as of November 2008 The banking sector, which constituted 55% of total market capitalization as of November 2008, is the largest sector on the Amman Stock Exchange (ASE). There are 15 banks listed on the ASE trading on the first market, except for Socit Gnrale Bank Jordan which is traded on the second market.

The ASE general index closed out the year 2007 at 3675.0 points, rising by 36.3% from its year-end level in 2006, its highest point for the year. The strong

performance of the ASE especially in the last quarter of 2007 can be attributed to a number of heavyweight stocks especially in the banking and mining sectors as these sectors' indices increased during the year by 29.7% and 70.0% respectively. In the first two months of 2008 the banking sector index showed a high correlation with the ASE general index. However, by the end of February the two indices began to diverge as a result of the extraordinary performance of heavyweight stocks in the mining & extraction sector. This has drove the general index to a year-to-date increase of 29.9% at the end of June, while the banking sector index only rose by 7.5% for the same period.

In the following months, and as a result of the current global financial crisis, all sector indices witnessed a decline which realigned the general and banking sector indices; they currently stand at a loss of 24.9% and 18.1% respectively since the beginning of 2008.

OUTLOOK
High domestic inflation and decreased spending power of Jordanian consumers will affect the banks' asset quality The upcoming years will prove challenging to the Jordanian banking sector as a result of the current financial crisis, as tighter lending regulations adopted by most banks in Jordan in the face of increased uncertainty will probably affect their profitability. Internal factors such as high domestic inflation and decreased spending power of Jordanian consumers will also affect the banks' asset quality and thus the effectiveness of the banks' credit policies and risk management will be put to the test.

12

Banks with high exposure to Arab and international markets will be hit the hardest amid highly uncertain economic conditions in these countries which is expected increase the number of non-performing loans as the full effects of this financial turmoil is yet to materialize. Lower income due to deteriorating capital markets is also in the folds, as trading and brokerage income will be reduced significantly. This, however, is not expected to slow down the Jordanian economy, since banks in Jordan sit on a substantial amount of excess liquidity and the common belief suggests that any eligible borrower will have no difficulty getting access to credit facilities. The upcoming few months will be difficult for most banks around the world and Jordanian ones are no exception. However, conservative regulation and monitoring from the central bank, in addition to wise lending policies adopted by most banks in the kingdom will at least ensure that the Jordanian banking sector is well equipped to face theses threats.
