Journal of Applied Finance & Banking, 2020, vol. 10, issue 6, 9

Abstract: This study examines the impact of innovation on performance of the Lebanese banks during 7 years period from 2009 to 2015. Based on a sample of seventeen Lebanese owned commercial banks, a Weighted Least Squares model was employed to investigate the relationship between two banking innovations, namely mobile banking and investment in computer software and banks’ performance as measured by Return-On-Assets and Return-On-Equity. Four control variables were included in the study specifically bank’s capitalization, cost efficiency, asset quality and bank’s size. The findings of the study showed that the two innovations studied have both significant but opposite impact on banks’ performance. Â
