Abstract

The study examined the impact of globalization on performance of Nigerian commercial banks between 2005 and 2010. It specifically determined the effects of policies of foreign private investment, foreign trade and exchange rate on performance of Nigerian banks. The study utilized panel data econometrics in a pooled regression, where time series and cross-sectional observations were combined and estimated. The results of econometric panel regression analysis confirmed that globalization, i.e. foreign private investment, foreign trade and exchange rate have positive effects on the profit after tax of banks but the magnitude of such effects remains indeterminable because we discovered that there are variations in the data for performance of banks understudied. Based on these findings, the study recommends that banks in Nigeria should not relent in their interaction with their foreign counterpart in doing business in order to increase their foreign earnings. Banks should also spend more on information and communication technology since this has the capacity of increasing their profit. This information technology (IT) should be used to localize all the branches to a single branch networking. In spending more on information and communication, they should make use of satellite communication and very small aperture terminal (VSAT) technology and internet banking VSAT technology apart from making possible voice and video banking. We further recommend that more banks should be opened in foreign countries in order to increase foreign participation in home country’s banking.
