J. Moyo, B. Nandwa, J. Oduor et al. | IMF, DFID

The objective of this study is to assess the implication of financial sector reforms on banking stability-insolvency nexus in a sample of SSA countries by examining variables relevant in explaining and predicting banking stability/fragility. The authors specifically, assess the extent to which financial liberalization undertaken by these countries either contributed to stability in the banking industry or led to incidences of fragility (bank distress).
