Bank Growth Choices and Changes in Market Performance
Posted: 24 Mar 2000
Changes in bank market performance are compared for banks that choose not to grow, to branch, bank acquire, product expand, or some combination. Using the change in market value-to-book value ratios, banks that include acquiring other banks as part of their growth strategy have significantly positive changes in performance. Positive performance by bank acquirers is in contrast to many studies, but prior research has not reviewed other growth activities in a single model, nor used market-based measures to review performance over longer time periods following bank expansion.
