Abstract

This paper studies the nexus between market power and business models in the banking industry. Business models are represented by non-interest income and non-deposit short-term funding share. We also examine the impact of bank business models on banking stability and performance. Using a sample comprising six ASEAN country banking sectors from 2002 to 2015, we find that banks with a strong capital base but lower net interest margin perform better in translating their market power into generating non-traditional income as alternative sources of revenues. Our findings also show that the implementation of the Basel 2 Accord encourages banks to create non-interest income from trading and derivatives activities as well as from other non-interest income. We also document that banks with higher market power tend to increase non-deposit short-term funding in their financing mix. In the evaluation of banking stability, our results suggest that banks with greater non-traditional income are associated with less overall banking risk. Moreover, non-traditional incomes also contribute to better bank performance.
