Abstract: The study was aimed at identifying the relationship between capital structure and bank performance. The bank performance was indicated by Return on Asset as the dependent variable and was regressed against the components of capital structure using multiple regression models. The results depict negative relationship between capital structure and bank performance as they indicate negative coefficients. The value of R square and adjusted R square was low, and the study recommends to be extended to more variables as it can help to improve the fitness of the model.
