Article publication date: 1 January 1992



Examines the impact of the oil recession on the viability of past banking business and its implications for the future loan portfolio of the commercial banks. Concludes that there is a need for greater risk management, not only in terms of loan recovery, but also in relation to more effective portfolio management; this embraces a greater emphasis upon the nature of risk and return in bank asset structure and greater diversification of assets in order to spread risks and to reduce bank exposure to particular sectors of the domestic economies.
