Are Transparent Banks More Efficient? Evidence from Russia (Refait-Alexandre C., Farvaque E., Weill L.)

Bank Efficiency Corporate Governance in Banking Information Asymmetry and Transparency

Abstract This study examines the relationship between bank transparency and efficiency. Using a unique dataset for Russian banks, we find that transparency is important and that, among the dimensions of transparency, the transparency in board and management structure and process represents the most significant determinant. These results are controlled for size effects, the structure of liabilities, the structure of assets, and nonperforming loans. This highlights the role of transparency in improving efficiency, particularly in transition economies.
