KPMG's Banking practice is well placed to help clients successfully navigate challenging times and capitalise on opportunities.

The Banking practice combines industry knowledge, tax, and other skills

The Albanian banks operate in a challenging environment in terms of expected regulatory and accounting reforms, customer demands, cost of funding and availability of viable projects for financing. 

The strategic agenda for the Banking industry in Albania is dominated by evolving regulations and embedding a risk management culture, demographic changes and increased investment in technology, including core systems, mobile platforms and social media and with new competition from entrants focused on the client.

At the same time, Kosovo is implementing different financial supervision development projects in order to further advance financial supervision in accordance with best international standards and to create an appropriate regulatory framework. In addition, the regulatory institutions in Kosovo are adopting new regulations, addressing a number of bank requirements in accordance with the Basel II standards, under standardized methods. No later than 2019, Kosovo is planning to complete the harmonization of the existing regulations for the supervision and regulation of banks with the Basel II standards for capital requirements and European directives.
