Regulatory Impact of Bank Performance in Nigeria: Application of Stochastic Frontier Analysis

Applied Economics and Finance, 2017, vol. 4, issue 4, 32-43

Abstract: This study employs a panel dataset on the cost efficiency of Nigerian commercial banks to test the hypothesis whether internal regulation from the monetary authority affects the performance of commercial banks. The empirical work is carried out through the use of stochastic frontier analysis on 14 commercial banks over 10 years. The study finds that regulation has a negative and significant influence on the total cost while bank output, input prices and bank size have a positive and significant effect. This implies that the large the bank size, the higher total cost incurred.
