He highlighted the performance and contribution of the sector and said that the sector has distributed significant amount to its share holders/certificate holders in the shape of cash dividend.

Dr. S. Akbar Zaidi, Executive Director, IBA also addressed the participants and appreciated the coordination between IBA-CEIF and NBFI & Modaraba Association of Pakistan and hoped that in future a series of such type of reports would also be brought for the awareness of the sector.

Dr. Ishrat Husain, Advisor to PM on Institutional Reforms & Austerity, the Chief Guest of the event suggested a number of measures to be taken by the NBFI & Modaraba Sector for its development and growth. He congratulated the authors and people who worked hard to produce such a fine report on the sector. He said that introduction of Fintech in the country would disrupt primacy of both the banking and non-banking sector to reposition themselves. He also mentioned that SME lending of the banks has reached from 17% to 7% which is very disturbing for the development of the SME Sector.
