Abstract: Using a large sample of 5,749 commercial banks, covering over 40,000 observations over the time window 2005–2012, we find that efficiency in the use of intellectual capital (IC) positively affects the financial performance of US banks. In addition, the results show that human capital (HC) efficiency, a subcomponent of IC efficiency, has a larger impact on financial performance than other IC sub-components. These findings suggest that the development of effective techniques of knowledge management, enabling banks to accumulate the IC necessary to adapt to a constantly changing environment, represents an effective tool of achieving the goals of both bank managers and policymakers.
