Analyzing the profit efficiency of the Turkish banking sector after the BRSA restructuring program in 2001: an empirical study using stochastic frontier approach between the years of 2002-2009

Hatunoğlu, Hande
This thesis analyzes the profit efficiency of the Turkish banking sector after the restructuring program by using Stochastic Frontier Approach. 28 banks are included in the analysis and the data belongs to the period 2002-2009. Profit efficiency scores of 28 banks are estimated by SFA. When the efficiency scores are analyzed according to the ownership status, profit efficiency scores of the state owned banks are found higher than other bank groups. Moreover, according to the asset size, large scale banks’ profit efficiency scores are found to be higher than the medium and small scale banks.


A Stress testing framework for the Turkish banking sector: an augmented approach
Çakmak, Bahadır; Öcal, Nadir; Department of Economics (2014)
This thesis proposes a suite of models, which are a set of independent but complementary models, for conducting a macro stress test of credit risk for the Turkish banking sector. First model links financial stability to macroeconomic stability and estimates the relationship between macroeconomic variables and macrofinancial variables within a VAR framework. Second model employs static and dynamic panel data techniques to regress nonperforming loans to these macroeconomic and macrofinancial variables. With a...
Influence of networks on systemic risk within banking system of Turkey
Özdemir, Özge; Günel Kılıç, Banu; Department of Information Systems (2015)
Within the Turkish banking system, systemic risk, which is defined as the propagation of a financial collapse occurred in one or more institutions to other institutions as a consequence of interconnectedness, has been examined with network analysis via the capital and liquidity channel of interbank system over the period from January 2009 to October 2014. Financial shocks of individual and multiple bank failures are simulated to measure the fragility and effectiveness of banks and peer groups. Simulation re...
International neoliberal development regime and regional development banks (African Development Bank, Asian Development Bank and Inter-American Development Bank)
Hecan, Mehmet; Tayfur, Mehmet Fatih; Department of International Relations (2017)
This thesis aims to illuminate regional development banks’ (RDBs) role in global diffusion of neoliberal policies since the early 1980’s. In this regard, it argues that along with the Bretton Woods Institutions (BWIs), the RDBs have also facilitated the spread of neoliberal policies, as these banks have practiced similar conditional/policy-based lending. In order to better explain the complementary roles of BWIs and RDBs within an analytical framework, the thesis employs the international relations (IR) con...
Measuring cost efficiency of Turkish commercial banks : a stochastic frontier approach
Güneş, Hakan; Yıldırım Kasap, Dilem; Department of Economics (2013)
This study examines cost efficiency of Turkish commercial banks through a stochastic frontier approach where the inefficiency effects are approximated by a set of bank-specific variables. Empirical results reveal that intermediation ratio, deposits divided by liabilities and labor per branch are the main determinants of the inefficiency of Turkish commercial banks. Moreover, it is observed that cost efficiency of all commercial banks has an upward trend until 2008 and it takes 10 quarters to recover from th...
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...
