Deteriorating Cost Efficiency in a Bank Signals the Risk of Failure
In: CNB Financial Stability Report 2005
AbstractThe banking sector is a dominant component of the financial system in the Czech Republic. The stability of the banking system is of key importance as regards the financial stability of the economy as a whole. Any turbulence in the banking system can, moreover, generate a need for additional fiscal expenses in this area. For these reasons it is important to analyse banking sector developments in more detail and to attempt to enhance the early warning system toolkit â€“ bank ratings, in order to prevent bank failures more effectively. This article sets out to describe a potentially usable concept of cost efficiency for more objective measurement of banks' management quality and demonstrates that this indicator is a good indicator of bank failure.
