The rating agency S&P in its latest report has highlighted the "very elevated risk" of the Lebanese banking sector which suffers from an over exposure to the country risk; this is because the banks' balance sheets are loaded with Lebanese Government bonds. In its 10 points risk rating (from 1 no risk to 10 very risky) S&P is ranking Lebanese banks as a group at level 9.
