Banks Rating in Uzbekistan in 2023

Banks Rating in Uzbekistan in 2023

The Center for Economic Research and Reforms (CERR) calculated the "Bank Activity Index" for the 4Q 2023, on the basis of which the rating of banks was updated. The index is calculated for 28 commercial banks grouped into two groups: large (17) and small (11) banks.

The index is determined based on the grouping of 27 types of coefficients, comparison and ranking. The study is conducted quarterly in order to monitor changes in the share of the private sector in banking assets, assess the effectiveness of reforms and transformation processes in the banking sector.

In calculating the Index, such indicators as financial intermediation, financial accessibility, capital adequacy, asset quality, management efficiency, earning ability, and liquidity were used. Banks are divided into two groups — large and small. At the same time, financial organizations operating only in Tashkent or in one of the regions are evaluated in the group of small banks.
