|Abstract:||Research on interest margin is an interesting issue since it has been one of the measures of
banks efficiency as well as it defines a part of banking system development. This study
investigates Net interest margin and its determinants of the Mongolian Commercial banks over
the period of 2004-2010.Net Interest margin is determined by Bank Specific variables using
Panel data estimation techniques. According to the estimation carried out for the Mongolian
banking system, the evidence reveals that, net interest margin positively affects by the level of
market concentration (Mongolian banks tend to increase interest margin when market
concentration increases), by the level of Capitalization (higher the risk aversion tend to have a higher net interest margin), and operating cost as well as credit risk are negatively associated
with interest margin.
