This study investigates the Italian SBs sector efficiency over the 2010 –2015 period. The measure of efficiency, in the first stage, is estimated via Data Envelopment Analysis – Slack Based Model. In the second stage we compare the performance of SBs belonging to bank groups with those stand-alone via Policy Evaluation. Results show that when comparing SBs belonging to a banks group with stand-alone SBs, although a positive but not significant ATT, we find no relevant differences between the SBs part of group and the stand-alone. However, with reference to Technical Efficiency the stand-alone SBs experience the worst performance while after an insight into the inefficiency decomposition it is clear that difficulties are due to managerial inefficiency.

Abstract

This study investigates the Italian SBs sector efficiency over the 2010 –2015 period. The measure of efficiency, in the first stage, is estimated via Data Envelopment Analysis – Slack Based Model. In the second stage we compare the performance of SBs belonging to bank groups with those stand-alone via Policy Evaluation. Results show that when comparing SBs belonging to a banks group with stand-alone SBs, although a positive but not significant ATT, we find no relevant differences between the SBs part of group and the stand-alone. However, with reference to Technical Efficiency the stand-alone SBs experience the worst performance while after an insight into the inefficiency decomposition it is clear that difficulties are due to managerial inefficiency.
