Abstract: In this study, relationship between non-interest income generating activities (income diversification) and risk-adjusted bank performance is investigated by using yearly data of Turkish deposit banks for the period of 2005 – 2011. System Generalized Method of Moments (System-GMM) estimators are used in this study with an unbalanced panel dataset of 26 banks.
