Thailand's financial sector remains robust and continues to attract foreign investors, in particular from Japan, China and other members of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN). Commercial banks, together with state-owned specialised financial institutions, dominate the financial system. Lenders have continued to bolster their capital positions in recent years.

Thailand has a sound banking system that has shown increased interest in lending to households in the past decade. The industry comprises a mix of domestic banks, foreign lenders and state-owned specialised financial institutions. Thailand's non-banking financial subsectors-notably insurance, fund management and securities-are relatively small, but well established.

Thailand's financial services industry generates substantial economic output with few employees. The sector accounted for 7.3% of GDP in 2018, according to the country's National Economic and Social Development Board. However, it accounted for only around 1.3% of the labour force in that year, according to the National Statistics Office.
