Abstract

This study use balance panel data in analysing the determinants of bank capital ratio for seven countries in East Asia. The results are consistent with the previous literature. There is a strong positive relationship between bank capital and bank risk taking behaviour. Besides, the result shows capital requirement pressure does not have an influence of low capitalised banks. Liquidity, leverage and profitability show positive link with the bank capital which support most of the bank literature. Finally, the country macro variables seemly do not influence the target capital level. Specification of banks type and ownership structure may be included in the future studies in bank capital ratio in East Asia region.
