Objectives – The purpose of this paper is to suggest some managerial and policy recommendations deriving from the observation of the determinants of the best efficiency levels achieved by the Euro Area banking groups. Data and Methods – Referring to the period 2009–2018 a stochastic frontier model is employed to quantify the efficiency levels of the banking groups for each single year. Then, with a cluster analysis, we identify the most relevant efficiency determinants of the best practice banking groups. Results – The main determinants of the high level of efficiency are linked to a particular business model devoted to the traditional lending activity and to specific managerial choices, such as the achievement of a medium size together with a rational valuation of the number of firms belonging to the same banking group and to suitable cost rationalization policies and liquidity reserves optimization policies. Conclusions – From our analysis some important reflections emerge regarding managerial and strategic choices and their impact on the results in terms of efficiency of each banking group. Few studies focused on such a particular topic after the 2008 Global Financial Crisis. In particular, the period involved is characterized by a strong turbulence within the financial markets and by many economic difficulties. Therefore, it can be considered a period able to represent well the complexity of the banking and financial markets in the last decade.

Abstract

Objectives – The purpose of this paper is to suggest some managerial and policy recommendations deriving from the observation of the determinants of the best efficiency levels achieved by the Euro Area banking groups. Data and Methods – Referring to the period 2009–2018 a stochastic frontier model is employed to quantify the efficiency levels of the banking groups for each single year. Then, with a cluster analysis, we identify the most relevant efficiency determinants of the best practice banking groups. Results – The main determinants of the high level of efficiency are linked to a particular business model devoted to the traditional lending activity and to specific managerial choices, such as the achievement of a medium size together with a rational valuation of the number of firms belonging to the same banking group and to suitable cost rationalization policies and liquidity reserves optimization policies. Conclusions – From our analysis some important reflections emerge regarding managerial and strategic choices and their impact on the results in terms of efficiency of each banking group. Few studies focused on such a particular topic after the 2008 Global Financial Crisis. In particular, the period involved is characterized by a strong turbulence within the financial markets and by many economic difficulties. Therefore, it can be considered a period able to represent well the complexity of the banking and financial markets in the last decade.
