Profitability determinants in the Tunisian Banks

Sarra TROUDI, Naoufel LIOUANE

Abstract


The present work has as objectives to both investigate the different variables of profitability of the Tunisian banks and to analyze the mechanisms through which the banks features and specificities may influence it. For this purpose, a sample panel consisting of 10 Tunisian banks was used over the period ranging from 1999 to 2010. The banks selected are those which provided the necessary data all along the period of research. The generalized method of moments (GMM) was used to generate the results of the econometric estimation data of the dynamic panel. These results indicate that many institutional and structural factors significantly influence the Tunisian banks profitability.
