Financial Performance Analysis of Banks Included In Bist Banking Index during the Pandemic Period
The aim of this study is to examine the financial performance of the banks in the Borsa Istanbul Banking Index during the pandemic period. The Covid 19 pandemic has caused a shock wave that deeply affects both real and financial markets around the world. The epidemic, which initially emerged as a regional health crisis, turned into an economic crisis due to restrictions on social life and closure of borders. This economic crisis, which affected the world, has also deeply affected the financial markets that provide resources to the economy as the countries’ economies have to reduce production. Banks, which are the most important institutions of financial markets, are the institutions most affected by the economic crisis caused by the epidemic. The Turkish banking system, which has a strong capital structure, is also under the influence of the economic crisis. In this study, which will examine the financial performance of the Turkish banking system during the pandemic period, multi-criteria decision making techniques will be used. The financial performance indicators to be used in the study will be determined by the literature study. For the financial performance indicators to be determined, the financial statements of the banks for the period of December 2020 will be used.
