Liquidity risk in banking sector : a ratio analysis applied to Turkish commercial banks

Ayaydın, Hande
The financial crises and bank runs in the past decade increased attention to the financial systems. In Turkey as in Europe banks are main financial intermediaries and financial crises occur mostly due to realization of risks in banks. Although liquidity risk is embedded into daily operations of banks unless controlled it may take banks into insolvency and even bankruptcy. This thesis aims to examine liquidity risk structure of Turkish banking sector. As a sample the domestic commercial banks in Turkey is chosen. The risk profile of the sector is examined by using a ratio analysis. The accounting figures in balance sheets and income statements of banks are employed for statistical analysis about liquidity risk of the sector. The means of liquidity ratios among different groups of banks are compared via analysis of variance. Moreover relation between liquidity risk and return in the sector is analysed by using panel data regressions.

First of all, a literature review related to liquidity risk and liquidity stress testing is given. In the following section, the regulatory framework in Turkey and Basel standards for liquidity risk are covered and the need for a liquidity risk stress test...

Boyraz, Mustafa Fatih; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Department of Economics (2012)
Early Warning Systems (EWSs) for banking sectors are used to measure occurrence risks of banking crises, generally observed with a rundown of bank deposits and widespread failures of financial institutions. In countries with a small number of banks, for example Turkey with 48 banks (BDDK, 2011), every bank may be considered to have a systematic importance since the failure of any individual bank may carry a potential threat to lead to a banking crisis. Taking into account this fact the present study focuses...

An Empirical study on fuzzy C-means clustering for Turkish banking system
Altınel, Fatih; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Department of Economics (2012)
Banking sector is very sensitive to macroeconomic and political instabilities and they are prone to crises. Since banks are integrated with almost all of the economic agents and with other banks, these crises affect entire societies. Therefore, classification or rating of banks with respect to their credibility becomes important. In this study we examine different models for classification of banks. Choosing one of those models, fuzzy c-means clustering, banks are grouped into clusters using 48 different ra...
