Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The effects of foreign bank entry on financial performance of Ghanaian-owned banks
by Acheampong, Nsiah K., D.B.A., University of Phoenix, 2011, 181; 3452764
Abstract (Summary)

This study used quantitative multiple regression research method to examine empirically the effect of foreign bank entry on the financial performance of two domestic-owned banks in Ghana from 1975 to 2008. The results were mixed for the two domestic-owned banks in some study periods because foreign bank entry had unique effects on their financial performance. The most consistent result from the panel data and the pooled regression was that foreign bank entry relatively increased domestic banks’ return on assets for the period 1992–2008; a period with a high influx of foreign banks into Ghana. This result supported the studies by Beck, Demirguc-Kunt, and Levine (2006) and Boldrin and Levine (2009) that found that foreign bank entry enhanced domestic banks profitability margins. In addition, liquidity had relatively larger multiplier effect on domestic banks’ return on assets for the period 1975–1991 than any other independent variables in the study. The presence of foreign-owned banks was not detrimental to the domestic banks in their financial performance.
