We explore the relationship between bank performances and financial stability of the banking system taking into account the Italian context during the period 2001-2014 and relying upon highly territorially disaggregated data taken at municipality level, in order to better capture the differences across geographical areas. The z-score is used as financial stability indicator, while the performance of financial intermediaries is measured using a parametric method recently developed (Kumbhakar et al., 2014). By focusing both on cooperative and non-cooperative banks, the role of the market power, measured through a bank specific market share based on loans, deposits and assets, on the performances-stability nexus has been analyzed. The empirical evidence shows a positive relationship between bank performance and financial stability; furthermore, we provide evidence in line with the “competition-stability” view for cooperative banks while supporting the “competition-fragility” view for non-cooperative banks. Robustness checks have been performed in order to explore whether the results change at different level of concentration of the banking system.
