Cluster analysis of bank business models: The connection with performance, efficiency and risk

Valentina Lagasio and Anna Grazia Quaranta

Finance Research Letters, 2022, vol. 47, issue PA

Abstract: We ran a worldwide investigation of the business models of 1,237 banks during 2011–2017 by applying a cluster analysis including ratios from both sides of the balance sheet of the bank and income statement. Then, via a connection analysis, we analysed whether there is a link between the adoption of a specific business model and size, profitability, efficiency and risk profile. We found that a bank business model is based on different endogenous factors (bank financial statements items and operating strategy) and can be linked to exogenous factors (financial crises, policies of central banks).
