K. M. Golam Muhiuddin, Nusrat Jahan


This paper evaluates the commercial banks of Bangladesh in terms of profitability dimension of performance and also examines the impact of selected determinants and banking system on this dimension of performance. Evaluation of trend in profitability of listed commercial banks of Bangladesh reveals that, on an average, profitability is exhibiting a decreasing trend over the selected period; however, the profitability performance of Islamic banks remained rather high compared to Conventional banks. Profitability measured by Return on Asset is found to be significantly affected by the bank-specific factors, industry-specific factor and the banking system. However, macro-economic factors evidently have no significant impact on profitability of commercial banks of Bangladesh.
