Pursuing SME Banking Excellence
In Cooperation with Standpoint


Date: November 12 - 14, 2017
Location: EBI Headquarters - Nasr City
Course Description:
It is universally accepted that a vibrant, robust and growing SME sector is a vital component of any healthy economy. SMEs are now regarded as the drivers of most economies as they create employment and income opportunities; they underpin a diversified economy that is resilient during downturn, foster innovation, support the equitable distribution of wealth and help to maintain civil society. In developing economies, low and middle income countries, SMEs provide vital linkages between the formal and informal sector and are an important cog in many corporate supply chains.
Success in the SME segment is also critical for future profitability and growth of banks and other Financial Institutions (FIs). As opportunities to generate returns from government securities, corporate and consumer lending diminish, banks need to become more engaged, proactive and innovative in the SME arena.
