1.0 Greek Banking Sector Compared to Euro Zone Banking Sector
1.1 Introduction
 The credit turmoil and the subsequent sharp deterioration of global markets added stress to the banking sector
as a whole, causing Greek banks to use part of the €28 bn. support package of the Bank of Greece (Central
Bank) and proceed also to share capital increases to bolster their capital strength in view of the need for higher
provisioning.
 The inherent weakness of the Greek economy with rising deficits and the highest debt to GDP ratio among
the E.U. countries leading to the successive downgrading of the country, had an additional unavoidable impact
on the banking sector itself and how international capital markets see it.
 Despite the above, Greek banks managed to weather the crisis so far, largely due to their operational model,
their substantial capital adequacy plus the fact that Greek banks were little or not exposed at all to toxic
assets or structured products, because in the “good times” they were using their reserves to acquire banks in
S. E. Europe, as opposed to investing in problematic products.
 Notwithstanding reduced profitability and increased regulatory requirements, following Basel II implementation,
the financial condition of the Greek banking system is sound, as confirmed also by recent credit ratings.
Recent increases of share capital bolstered even further their capital adequacy ratios, thus supporting the
stability of the banking system and facilitating future asset growth.
 As illustrated in the following slides, there is still considerable favourable gap between Greek banks and
the average of the EU27 and no doubt the banking sector, is one of the healthiest sectors of the Greek
economy.
 The recent turmoil unavoidably created much stress on the smaller banks, so 2010 and 2011 are expected to be
years of further consolidation in the Greek banking market with smaller banks expected either to be absorbed
by bigger banks or merged amongst themselves, notwithstanding the possibility of seeing also some “mega
mergers” amongst the larger banks. It takes one “mega merger” to fuel a chain reaction amongst the rest of
the group.

1.2 Total Lending Penetration in Greece and the Euro Zone (2007)
Although total lending in Greece has grown rapidly over the last years, there is still room for considerable
growth, as total lending penetration lags behind the EU average. Of course the increasing defaults, the need
Highlight:
for more provisioning and the need for stronger balance sheets, makes (correctly) Greek Banks more
apprehensive on lending in these times.

income. This is no surprise, given their operational model. Greek banks focused traditionally on commercial

substantial income from interest, but also their lack of exposure to toxic assets and structured products!

2.1 Evolution of Total Lending in Greece and Breakdown by Type (2004 – Oct. 2009)
For years, Greek banks witnessed an unprecedented domestic credit expansion on the back of strong credit
demand, low interest rates and favorable economic environment. Mortgage and consumer lending, were the
Highlight: main drivers. However, economic slowdown, increasing provisioning and pressures to improve capital
adequacy, have led to more stringent credit criteria and a virtual halt on credit expansion.

accelerated, though at a higher cost. Indicatively, time deposits rose to c. 60% of total deposits in 2008 from

2.4 Evolution of Greek Banks’ Non-Performing Loans (2003 – 2008)
The loan portfolio quality is probably the major concern of all at the moment.
Economic slowdown coupled with anticipated increase in the cost of funding due to the expected interest
Highlight: rates increase by the ECB and the downgrading of Greece’s credit rating, will likely deteriorate the loan
portfolio quality further, through an expected deepening of the crisis in early 2010.
To this end all banks have been increasing their impairment provisions drastically in 2008 and 2009 and
proceeded to restructurings to avoid defaults.

Reduced profitability or losses (particularly in 2008), Basel II implementation (effective from Jan. 2008) and
an increase in risk weighted assets due to credit expansion, all had a negative impact on capital adequacy

C. Growth in Loans (31.12.2005 – 30.09.2009 ) / Consolidated Figures
• For many years, following consumer credit liberalization, banks exhibited an aggressive credit expansion culture,
leveraging up their balance sheets and enhancing their earnings through such a strategy.
Highlight: • Notwithstanding competition in loans, interest rate spreads are still considerably higher than EU averages.
• Again, interesting to compare this slide which goes to 30/09/2009 with the next one which goes to 31/12/2008,
to see drastic reduction in lending in the first 9 months of 2009.

E. Growth in Deposits (31.12.2005 – 30.09.2009 ) / Consolidated Figures
• Balance sheet leveraging increased dependence on financial markets and a more aggressive competition for deposits.
As a result, competition in attracting deposits peaked up in 2008 and so did their cost!
Highlight:
• The liquidity crunch and the increasing difficulty to attract funds from international markets (especially at a time when
the country itself is downgraded), proved that such a strategy is not sustainable in the long-term.
