Summary
UAE has a well-diversified and sound financial system that plays an important role in the economy. The retail banking sector is rapidly growing due in part to the country's increasing expatriate population. Product ownership rates are high, particularly for current and savings accounts. Emirati consumers retain a traditional attitude towards provider choice, favoring banks with which they have a prior relationship. Product application is still largely conducted via branches, meaning there is considerable scope for providers to encourage greater use of digital channels. In the UAE, both domestic and foreign banks have made investments in low-cost distribution channels such as internet banking and ATM networks.

Key Findings
- The UAE banking sector is less concentrated compared to other developed countries, with the top three providers claiming slightly over two-fifths of current accounts.

- In the UAE, 30% of account holders have switched banks in the last 12 months. The UAE has the highest switching rate in the region, and is well above the global average.

- Emirati savers are cautious, with two thirds saving to protect themselves against unforeseen events and more than half saving for retirement. Growth in Islamic banks is playing a major role, resulting in higher deposits with Islamic banks.

- The UAE mortgage market is relatively small but is growing. UAE mortgage balances outstanding totaled AED0.29tn in 2014, up from AED0.20tn in 2009.

- More than a third of UAE consumers have a personal loan, and the current growth in consumer lending is being fueled by an increase in bank competition and changing demographics as a result of a growing expatriate population.
