(3) The CBTT was asked to rate the individual banks on the level of compliance with the BPRR over the period 1997-2006 on a scale of 0 to 10.
BPRR compliance appears to be steadily increasing over time for Banks 1, 3 and 4 while it is showing a definite increase in the case of Bank no.
The main concern of this paper is whether compliance with the BPRR affects bank performance.
This paper investigates how compliance with BPRR affects the performance of an individual bank in Trinidad & Tobago.
The results show that BPRR compliance significantly affects the net interest margin, the return on assets and the non-performing loan ratio.
There is ample evidence that BPRR compliance brings about performance improvement, although there is some exception to this rule.
