Abstract

Despite overall growing profits and increasing Total Factor Productivity (TFP) change in the United Arab Emirates banking sector, research reveals evidence of over-banking and inefficiency by the sector as a whole and several banks in particular. The inclusion of Off Balance Sheet (OBS) activities increases efficiency scores and estimated productivity levels for most banks, reinforcing the prevailing view that the exclusion of non-traditional activities leads to a misspecification of banks' output.
