Abstract


  • This

    study investigates the impact of financial reforms, bank characteristics, and

    time trends on the performance of the Vietnamese banking sector under the

    assumption that

    ownership can result in a divergence of technologies utilised by

    different bank groups

    (including state

    -

    owned, private, and foreign banks), and the

    fact that these groups may respond differently to the same environmental

    variables

    .

    By combining a meta

    -

    frontier analysis with double

    -

    bootstrap two

    -

    stage

    DEA the authors analyse the impact of en

    vironmental variables on bank

    efficiency across separate groups operating under different technologies.

    Accordingly, this paper, firstly, employs ownership as an

    ex ante

    rather than an

    ex post

    factor as used in all earlier studies when examining the influe

    nce of this

    environmental variable on bank efficiency. Using data for Vietnamese banks

    covering the period 2007

    -

    2012

    our results show that the performance of bank

    groups is significantly different, and that state

    -

    owned banks are more efficient

    and have a s

    maller technology gap to the meta

    -

    frontier in comparison with foreign

    and private banks. Moreover, these different bank groups react dissimilarly to a

    number of variables, for instance

    ,

    state

    -

    owned banks have a negative, while

    private banks have a positive

    , relationship to the loan to asset ratio.
