  • Effects of Corporate Governance on Banking Performance of Commercial Banks
           in Bangladesh

    • Authors: Mohammad Niaz Morshed, Sardar Md Humayun Kabir, Md Muhibbullah, Rafia Afroz, Fadhilah Binti Abdullah Asuhaimi
      First page: 1
      Abstract: Corporate governance is the system by which organizations are directed, monitored and controlled. It is an oversight mechanism to ensure the management team efficiently allocates the organizational resources, so as to protect the interest of shareholders and stakeholders. There is a need for good corporate governance practice to stabilize the performance of financial institutions. This study investigated the influence of corporate governance in banking performance. Panel data analysis has been conducted for the top nine public and private commercial banks operating in Bangladesh for a period of 2009 to 2017. Board size, structure of internal audit committee and capital adequacy ratio were being taken as independent variables to measure the effects of corporate governance whereas return on asset, return on equity and earnings per share were being taken as dimensions for measuring bank performance. Correlation and regression analysis techniques were being used to examine the relationships between corporate governance practices and bank performance. The results indicated that CAR has the greater impact on Bank performance. The information derived from this study can be valuable and will help to enhance the understanding of the governing bodies of financial institutions for accelerating banking performance.

  • Macro Variable Determinants of Exchange Rates in Vietnam

    • Authors: Ly Phuong TRAN, Binh Thi Thanh DAO
      First page: 18
      Abstract: Exchange rate is the value of one nation’s currency that can be converted into others, or the unit of the domestic currency needed to buy 1 unit of foreign money system. It is an obvious that exchange rate has always been acknowledged as the main culprit behind several economic phenomena, playing a significant role in determining the change of the economy. Due to its importance, exchange rate allows comparison of good prices among countries or the transfer of funds in different nations, accounting for the health of one economy. This paper aims to take a closer look at the roles of several economic variables on the movement of exchange rate, studying the short term and long term effect as well as the beneficial or detrimental impacts contributing to the fluctuation of the currency conversion value. This research focuses on the fluctuation of three exchange rates, which are Japanese Yen, United State Dollar, Euro to Vietnamese Dong. The chosen macro variables for analyzing include economic growth, export, import, inflation, foreign direct investment, budget deficit, stock market index, crude oil price, balance of payment between Vietnam and other countries for a sample of 15 years from 2003 to 2017 quarterly.

  • Assessing the Impact of Operational Flaws on the Performance of
           Microfinance Institutions in Ghana

    • Authors: Adjei Gyamfi Gyimah, Annette Serwaa Agyeman, Solomon Adu-Asare
      First page: 37
      Abstract: Microfinance institutions contribute significantly to the development of a country, and many of these institutions are found in most developing countries including Ghana. However, many challenges have been alleged to stifle the efforts of microfinance companies in their attempt to make their all-important contribution to the development of nations. This study explored the effect of operational flaws on the performance of microfinance institutions in Ghana. The results discovered flaws and challenges associated with the operations of the MFIs in many areas including corporate governance, credit risk management, credit administration, regulatory challenges, and training programs. The study also revealed that such flaws and challenges do harm the overall performance of the MFIs. Based on the findings, it is recommended that MFIs put in place a well-composed and resourceful credit committee to perform the duty of credit risk management in the institutions. The institutions could also reduce their interest rates to encourage their clients to apply for more loans. Lastly, it is recommended that the MFIs take all necessary steps to ensure that they reduce the flaws and challenges they face to mitigate the negative impact of such deficiencies on their performance.

  • Impact of Foreign Direct Investment on Human Development Index in South

    • Authors: Marius KOUNOU
      First page: 58
      Abstract: Many studies have been done on the impact of Foreign Direct Investment on economic growth and poverty reduction in developing countries, however there is a lack of empirical studies of FDI impact on poverty reduction in South Africa which is the second largest FDI recipients of one of the poorest regions in the world (sub Saharan Africa). We used time series data from 1990 to 2017 with the ARDL method to evaluate the impact of FDI Inflow on HDI in the country. The results show that FDI inflow has no significant impact on HDI both in the short run and long run on the country. This result is consistent with findings reported in the literature.

  • Financial Inclusion in Egypt: Does It Affect Banks’ Profitability
           and Liquidity'

    • Authors: Nisreen Mohammed Said Almaleeh
      First page: 73
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the association between financial inclusion and levels of profitability and liquidity of Egyptian banks. Two hypotheses are tested; the first is about whether financial inclusion has an impact on the Egyptian banks’ profitability, and the second is about whether financial inclusion has an impact on the Egyptian banks’ liquidity. Data of Egyptian banks for the period from 2012 to September 2018 are used to test the hypotheses of the study. Financial inclusion is measured by the access and usage measures derived from the G20 summit “Global partnership for Financial Inclusion”, profitability and liquidity are measured by multiple agreed-upon measures. The study which employed various regression models reveals that 53% of the variance in the Egyptian banks’ profitability can be explained by the variance in the financial inclusion measures, and that the various measures of banks’ liquidity are significantly affected by financial inclusion.
