Gómez-González, J. E. (José Eduardo) | 2014-05-13
This article studies the main determinants of commercial banks´ profitability in Colombia for the
period January 2000 – May 2007. We estimate the effects of movements in the COP / USD exchange
rate on bank profitability, in different moments we use cross-sectional time-series methodologies
and correct for possible autocorrelation and heteroscedasticity, frequently present in these types of
data. Our results indicate that the cumulative effect of movements in the exchange rate on banks´
assets are statistically significant but low in magnitude.
