Provisioning, Bank Behavior and Financial Crisis: Evidence from GCC Banks

Saibal Ghosh

Review of Middle East Economics and Finance, 2015, vol. 11, issue 3, 249-275

Abstract: The debate on bank capital regulation has in recent years devoted specific attention to the role that bank loan loss provisions play as a part of the overall minimum capital regulatory framework. Using data for 1996–2011, we find evidence in favor of both capital management and signaling behavior by GCC banks. Islamic banks appear to engage less in such behavior as compared to their non-Islamic counterparts.
