Abstract

A partir de la segunda mitad de la década de los ochenta Bolivia atravesó un proceso de liberalización del sector bancario con el propósito de alcanzar mayor eficiencia, productividad y rentabilidad que tuvo su mayor intensidad en la década pasada, cuando la banca experimentó profundas transformaciones como resultado de cambios regulatorios y de episodios de contracción de la actividad financiera. Estos hechos tuvieron un impacto importante tanto sobre la estructura productiva de la industria bancaria en general como de cada institución en particular. Con el fin cuantificar dichos cambios se estimaron los niveles de ineficiencia en costos en el sistema bancario, que en promedio durante el período de análisis fue de 36%. Asimismo, se identificaron las variables que contribuyen a explicar las diferencias de eficiencia entre las entidades analizadas.
