The Impact of Innovation on Banking Performance: Evidence from Lebanese Banking Sector
Journal of Applied Finance & Banking, 2020, vol. 10, issue 6, 9
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 banksâ€™ performance as measured by Return-On-Assets and Return-On-Equity. Four control variables were included in the study specifically bankâ€™s capitalization, cost efficiency, asset quality and bankâ€™s size. The findings of the study showed that the two innovations studied have both significant but opposite impact on banksâ€™ performance.Â Â
