Research on the Impact of Internet Finance on the Efficiency of Chinese Commercial Banks
Abstract: This paper selects 15 Chinese commercial banks as the research sample, using stochastic frontier approach, setting Trans-log Production Function. The paper firstly measures the efficiency of commercial banks, and the results show that the efficiency level of Chinese commercial banks is on the rise from 2007 to 2016, and the efficiency of state-owned banks is higher than that of joint-stock banks. Secondly, the paper studies the influence factors of the efficiency of Chinese commercial banks in the view of banks own factors, industry factors, Internet financial development factors. The results show that the non-performing loan ratio level and the Internet financial development are negatively related to the bank efficiency, and competition of market is positively associated with the bank efficiency, and the structure of property rights will also significantly affect the performance of commercial banks.
