An Empirical Investigation Of Payment Performance For Consumer Loans In Turkey

This paper explores the relationship between consumer credit clients’ payment performance and some demographic and financial variables. Data to examine this relationship is obtained from the customer records of a private bank in Turkey. A logistic binary regression is used to evaluate the data. Financial variables rather than the demographic characteristics of clients have significant influence on customers’ pay back performance. Thus, the longer the maturity time and the higher the interest rate, the higher the credit payment performance risks. Accordingly, banks and other financial institutions may minimize the credit payment performance risk by adjusting the financial instruments such as the interest rate and the maturity time.


Comparison of machine learning algorithms on consumer credit classification
Koç, Oğuz; Kestel, A. Sevtap.; Department of Financial Mathematics (2019)
Like other prediction models, credit scoring is a tool used to evaluate the amount of risk associated with applicants or customers. Scoring models identify clients individually as good or bad applicants. They offer statistical odds or probabilities for prediction either the applicant will be default or not in the future. It is beneficial for banks and credit analysts to measure customers' non-payment risk by statistically tested algorithms in many aspects such as reduction in workload and evaluation time. A...
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...
Additional tests of multi-index asset pricing models: evidence from an emerging market
Danışoğlu, Seza (2017-01-01)
This study provides comprehensive evidence on the performance of asset pricing models in an emerging market setting. Tests are conducted on portfolios formed based on Fama-MacBeth betas, Fama-French size and book-to-market (B/M) factors, Carhart's short-and long-term past returns and Pastor and Stambaugh's liquidity beta. This is one of the first studies to provide emerging market evidence on Pastor and Stambaugh's liquidity beta measuring a firm's sensitivity to changing levels of market-wide liquidity. Re...
International Evidence on Risk Taking by Banks Around the Global Financial Crisis
Danışoğlu, Seza; Güner, Zehra Nuray; Ayaydın Hacıömeroğlu, Hande (2018-01-01)
This study models the risks of commercial banks from the United States and developed, emerging, and frontier countries while controlling for bank- and country-specific variables within a panel framework. Bank risk is measured by both the traditional Z-score and a composite bank risk index proposed by the authors. The findings suggest that even though the riskiness of all banks from different country groups increased following the financial crisis, the magnitude of the change is not the same across groups. D...
The performance evaluation and persistence of a type mutual funds in Turkey
Yalçın, Özge; Küçükkaya, Halit Engin; Department of Business Administration (2012)
Literature reveals studies on mutual fund performance analysis and persistency, with various results. Some studies support hort term performance persistence, while the rest claiming no such persistency among the portfolios. This thesis is an attempt to analyze the performances of Turkish open-end mutual funds for the period of 2003-2010 and search for persistency by extending the time period to June 2011. For performance evaluation, single factor CAPM and ama-French’s Three Factor Model are applied. Persist...
