Abstract

"This study looks at the determinants of entry by Turkish banks into local markets during the periods before and after the crisis of 2000-2001. Motivated by a theoretical model of entry, results of fixed-effects logit regressions suggest that there has been a change in the geographical diversification strategies of Turkish banks. It appears that the dominance of strategic concerns, such as competing with banks of similar size, has diminished, while economic concerns, such as incumbent characteristics and cost considerations, have become more important. Overall, the postcrisis restructuring policies seem to have led to improved decision making in the sector. "("JEL "G21, L22, R30) Copyright (c) 2008 Western Economic Association International.
