Abstract

Liquidity is an important variable for the bank and the banking system components. So it is interesting to show its determinants. Thus, we used a sample of 18 banks in Tunisia in for 2000- 2010period. We estimated two measures of liquidity (liquid assets / total assets; total loans / total deposits). Through the method of static panel and method of panel dynamic, we found that (financial performance, capital / total assets, operating costs/ total assets, growth rate of GDP, inflation rate, delayed liquidity) have significant impact on bank liquidity while (size, total loans / total assets, financial costs/ total credits, total deposits / total assets) does not have a significant impact on bank liquidity.
