Liu, Hong, Molyneux, Philip and Nguyen, Linh (2012) Competition and risk in South East Asian commercial banking. Applied Economics, 44 (28). pp. 3627-3644. ISSN 0003-6846Full text not available from this repository.
This paper investigates the effects of competition on bank risk-taking behaviour in four South East Asian countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Vietnam). Our main finding is that competition does not increase bank risk taking behaviour and the results appear robust to different model specifications, estimation approaches and variable construction. We also find that concentration is inversely related to bank risk whereas regulatory restrictions positively influence bank risk-taking.
