Bank adoption remains low across Jordan — study

Less than half of the population over 21 years of age in Jordan has bank accounts, a study by the Arab Advisers Group showed Tuesday.

The survey, which was conducted with 925 individuals over 21 years old, revealed that around 45 per cent of the respondents have bank accounts in one or more of the 25 operational banks in Jordan.

The survey, which was conducted in the 12 governorates, showed that bank adoption among male respondents is higher than among their female peers, where 57.6 per cent of male respondents reported having bank accounts.
