Abstract: Using panel data estimation, we evaluate the effects of financial soundness indicators, financial openness and bank liquidity on financial development across 40 countries. According to our dynamic panel estimates, the following variables are found to significantly affect financial development: capital to asset ratio, nonperforming loans and direct foreign investment. Our result indicated that the change in capitalization ratio was the main driver of financial development. Moreover, nonperforming loan shock has a negative and significant influence on financial development. This study emphasizes the important role of financial soundness and financial openness in maintaining financial stability and development of banking system.
