Abstract: This study aimed to demonstrate the role of financial analysis tools in making decisions of granting loans to the clients in Jordanian commercial and Islamic banks operating in Aqaba Special Economic Zone. The study concluded that the bank credit departments at these banks rely on the tools and techniques of financial analysis when receiving customer requests and sorting it for the granting of credit. However, the role of the bank credit departments at these banks is not enabled as required and is dominated by marketing nature more than credit standing, where its role is limited to promoting banking services through receiving client requests, sorting and sending them to main centers concerned with making granting loans decision. The study has recommended the necessity of activating the role of these sections as well as developing the staff skills of those sections to use financial analysis tools and giving credit departments at banks operating within Aqaba Special Economic Zone the necessary authorities to make decisions to grant customers credit through the application of financial analysis methods. Moreover it is necessary to stimulate and encourage the credit department's staff in these banks by giving them bonuses and rewarding their dedication and their honesty, which will enhance the mutual trust between departments' staff and the managers in these banks.
