By Alex Fayman


The goal of this paper is to illuminate differences between factors that drive profitability of small and large banks. This research shows that indeed there are notable differences. There are factors that are significant in influencing performance of large banks that do not impact performance of small banks and vice versa.

These findings are important to investors, bank executives and regulators. The results of this paper can help to better formulate policies and regulations that shape the banking business
