Abstract


  • Deviating from conventional methods in comparing the group performance of

    banks this study extends the established literature to compare efficiency

    between foreign and domestic banks, by employing comprehensive weighted

    aggregate efficiency measures derived through bootstrap simulations for the

    banking sector for the post

    -

    confli

    ct era of Sri Lanka. The study also compares

    the banking sector performance between initial and later parts of the post

    -

    conflict period, using weighted aggregate efficiency measures. At the end of

    the armed conflict between LTTE

    1

    and Sri Lankan government

    forces the

    banking sector experienced considerable expansion in terms of banking

    density and services volume, concurrent with overall economic expansion.

    T

    his study concludes that there was no significant difference in the efficiency

    levels between domesti

    c and foreign banks operating in Sri Lanka in the post

    conflict era. Further, it reveals that banking sector efficiency

    during the period

    2010

    -

    2013 outperformed efficiency during the period 2008

    -

    2009.

    The major

    findings from this study are of importance to

    policy makers, as they enable

    evaluation of banking efficiency dynamics when the banking sector records

    higher expansion during a period of rapid economic growth.
