Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This paper discusses a multiple linear regression conducted during the first quarter of 2008 to the third quarter of 2016 on 38 banks separately for banking business (consumer banking and institutional banking) and management (private banking and public banking) to examine the determinants of non-performing loans in the Taiwanese banking sector It is found that the influence of bank characteristics on NPLs is low especially considering bank specific factors such as NPLT-1 size return on equity and the capital adequacy ratio in the models which mitigate the effect of bank characteristics Therefore there is insufficient evidence to support our hypothesis However this research may help us to understand and provide information to financial institutions regarding the potential effect of both macroeconomic and bank-specific variables on NPLs
