This study experienced the effect of different regulatory restrictions and macroeconomic status on banks’ profit in Egypt. The study used factor analysis and event study techniques on data that covered the time period from 2003 to 2016 for banking sector as a whole and individual bank unit using a sample of 13 bank units in Egypt; in addition, the study experienced the performance of common stocks of the bank units in the sample. The study found that the development of regulatory restrictions has a positive effect on the profitability of the banking sector; however, due to the differentiated characteristics of individual bank units, this effect was dissimilar for different bank units in the sample. Finally, the study concluded that if individual bank units play their development role in the economy, they will be able to meet the new set of regulatory restrictions and at the same time achieve high rates of return on their assets.
