Income diversification and bank performance: Evidence from turkish banking sector

Bu çalışmada, faiz dışı gelir yaratan faaliyetler (gelir çeşitlendirmesi) ve riske göre düzeltilmiş banka performansı arasındaki ilişki, Türk mevduat bankalarına ait 2005 – 2011 dönemi yıllık verileri kullanılarak incelenmektedir. Bu çalışmada, sistem genel momentler yöntemi (Sistem- GMM) tahmincileri, 26 bankanın yer aldığı dengesiz bir panel veri setiyle kullanılmaktadır. Ampirik sonuçlarımız, gelir çeşitlendirmesinin Türk mevduat bankalarının riske göre düzeltilmiş finansal performansını arttırdığını göstermektedir.

Gelir çeşitlendirmesi ve banka performansı: Türk bankacılık sektöründen bulgular

In this study, relationship between non-interest income generating activities (income diversification) and risk-adjusted bank performance is investigated by using yearly data of Turkish deposit banks for the period of 2005 – 2011. System Generalized Method of Moments (System-GMM) estimators are used in this study with an unbalanced panel dataset of 26 banks. Our empirical results indicate that income diversification increases risk-adjusted financial performance of Turkish deposit banks.
