The aim of this paper is to estimate the differences in efficiency between banks in four financial conglomerates and other banks in the banking sectors in Visegrad countries within the period 2005-2015. In line with the aim of the paper, the research question is stated as follows: Are banks that belong to financial conglomerates more efficient than other banks in the banking sectors in the Visegrad countries? We analysed banks from four financial conglomerates: Erste Group, Société Généralé Group, UniCredit Group and KBC Group. Moreover we estimated the efficiency of commercial banks in the Visegrad countries using the Dynamic Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) approach. We did not find the statistical significant differences in efficiency between banks that belong to a financial conglomerate and other banks in the banking sectors in the Visegrad countries.
