Abstract: Our paper examined whether there would be an increased likelihood of banks merging to improve their post-A-IRB financial performance after adopting the Advanced Internal Rating Based (A-IRB) approach. We used return on equity (ROE), return on assets (ROA) and credit risk (CR) as indicators of banks’ financial status. An analysis on bank’s hypothetical post-A-IRB financial status showed that banks would utilize excess capital to merge to improve profitability.
