Abstract:

We examine the effect of a rise in foreign ownership on banks' interest revenues and profitability using panel data of banks worldwide. We determine the exact yearly foreign ownership for each bank and construct a continuous foreign ownership variable. Estimating with the system generalized methods of moments (GMM) technique we find that a rise in foreign ownership negatively affects bank performance, providing evidence for the home field advantage theory.
