Abstract

This paper aims to shed some lights and document the activity of the banking industry in Morocco and to highlight areas where problem arises during the period from 2007-2012, by examining the structure, and performance of the Moroccan banking industry as a whole. It was found that the outlook for the Moroccan banking sector is positive, where total banks’ assets reached a balance of Moroccan Dirhaim 1,040,648,449, presenting 126 percent of Gross Domestic Product at current prices at the end of 2012. On the other hand, there are still a lot of opportunities in the industry, such as retail segment, lending to SME’s and the Islamic banking segment.
