Kazakhstan’s banking system retains liquidity and capital reserves
Kazakhstan’s banking system retains substantial liquidity and capital reserves. This allows national financial institutions to continue stable credit operations and meet their obligations, the Agency for Regulation and Development of Financial Market reports. In general, the reserve of highly liquid assets at second-tier banks is more than 11 trillion tenge (US$25 billion). The structure of the sector’s commitments is mainly represented by the deposit portfolio – it amounts to about 77 percent.
