The analysis of concentration of Slovak banking sector
Faculty of Economic Informatics, Bratislava, Slovakia
The past years have brought a significant impact of financial crisis on the Slovak banking sector. It is an objective fact or it also contributed to its structure. The analysis of banking sector can be realized on the base of known indices that are aimed to measure the concentration, particularly the degree of concentration of m strongest banks, the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index of industry concentration, the Degree of Dispersion, Coefficient of Variation, the Index of Dominance, Theil Entropy Index, the Gini Coefficient, Rosenbluth Index, Comprehensive Concentration Index, Linda Index, Ellison-Glaesera Index, Maurel-Sedillot Index, Hannah-Kay Index of Concentration. Some of the indices were used to analyze the banking sector in Slovakia and we also performed the sensitivity analysis of impact of changing conditions, namely its restructuring.
