The financial sector in Slovenia
The financial sector in Slovenia is marked by a relatively high degree of concentration. The largest bank in the country is state owned, while others are set up by foreign investors in Slovenia or takeover or merged with Slovenian banks. The local government adopted a series of measures aimed at improving the financial sector after the economic crisis. The stability and well functioning of the financial sector is managed by the Bank Asset Management Company (BAMC), established by the Slovenian government. The banking legislation has been amended in order to promote the establishment of financial companies in Slovenia and to authorize them to purchase securities abroad. The Slovenian companies operating in the insurance sector benefit from significant changes in the legislation regulating this area.
