A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE FINANCIAL STRUCTURES OF BANKS IN TURKEY AND KYRGYZSTAN
The present study aims to compare the financial structures of the banks operating in the banking sectors of Turkey and Kyrgyzstan in the period between 2007 and 2014. Financial data of the banks of Turkey and Kyrgyzstan were used to create a sample. 10 financial ratios were used in 5 categories in order to compare the structures of the banks. The mentioned categories are related to balance sheet structure, asset quality, capital adequacy, income and expense structure, and profitability. T-test was utilized in empirical analyses. The results of the analysis suggest that Kyrgyz banks have higher capital adequacy compared to the banks in Turkey. Banks in Turkey, on the other hand, had higher levels of non-interest incomes, asset quality, return on assets and return on equity compared to the banks in Kyrgyzstan.
