During the period of 2006 to 2013, banking system in China has been through gradually

significant reform and policy changes alongside with efficiency and resource allocation

improvements. These could further improve profitability. Therefore, this study aims to

investigate the profitability determinants of Chinese banking sector by selecting 38 banks

located in the four most developed regions (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen) in

China. Also, it classified the determinants into bank-specific indicators (asset size, asset

quality, asset proportion, income-expenditure structure, capital adequacy, deposits, loans and

employees productivity), and macro-economic indicators (economic activity, inflation,

concentration and overall banking efficiency on industrial level) on the banks performance,

which is measured by the return on total equity. The results in this study imply that ratios

employed have different effects on the performance of banks in China.
