Notes
  • The aim of this paper is to explore the efficiency and the benchmarks of financial holding companies (FHCs) for a small open economy, Taiwan. We employ a two-stage production process including profitability and marketability performance using a non-parametric frontier method â data envelopment analysis (DEA). Furthermore, the factor-specific measure and BCC (BankerâCharnesâCooper) model are combined together not only to identify the inputs/​outputs that are most important but also to distinguish those FHCs which can be treated as benchmarks. Our empirical result shows that (1) big-sized FHCs are generally more efficient than small-sized ones; (2) FHCs with the main body of insurance averagely perform better than the other two types (banks and securities); (3) while small efficient FHCs are easily to become benchmarks, big efficient FHCs are deemed as competitive niche players; (4) further mergers and acquisitions among FHCs should be considered so as to achieve economies of scale. The profitability/​marketability matrix of FHCs is also presented.
