Key risk determinant of listed deposit-taking institutions in Malaysia.
Malaysian Management Journal, 8 (1).
Risk management is a critical function in banking operations in the wake of several banking crises.
However; we find few studies on risk management and a lack of empirical investigation on factors affecting the risk of Malaysian banks. These gaps have motivated us to identify the main factors associated with the risk of locally listed deposit-taking institutions. The findings show that three factors were signlficantly associated with unsystematic risk, while the systematic risk and the total risk of these
deposit-taking institutions were significantly affected by four main factors. These four factors namely non-performing loans, cost of funds, loan to deposit ratio and inter-bank offered rate however; were found to have a more profound effect on the total risk than on the systematic risk or the unsystematic risk of Malaysian deposit-taking institutions.
