Abstract

We look at the profitability measures of the conventional and Islamic banking sectors in 5 GCC countries. We focus on the bank specific profitability determinants using panel regression models. In contrast to some of the results in the literature, we find no significant differences between the two sectors and hypothesis a possible local investor bias between the two sector potentially explaining the market differences.

Keywords: gcc, banking, banks profitability, panel data
