The results from quantitative research indicated that three factors: leverage, cost efficiency management and tier 1 are quite significant determinants that affect banks’ performance during this financial crisis. Furthermore, studying four specific banks using case studies method identified three more important determinants of banks’ performance during this crisis. They are diversification focus, merger and acquisition involvement, and last but not least the risk management.
