The dissertation consists of four chapters that represent separate papers in the area of banking sector. The first chapter explores the impact of the new policy mix adopted by the CBRT after the global financial crisis on credit growth volatility, which is closely monitored as one of the key indicators for financial stability in Turkey. The second chapter employs a new unique database and introduces new uncertainty and disagreement measures for the long-term inflation and real rate expectations. The third chapter investigates the factors that affect the banking sector’s reserve maintenance pattern within the reserve requirement maintenance period with the use of bank level data. The final chapter focuses on the impact of banking sector indicators on the sovereign risk premium of countries with different levels of development and current account balance structure, and during periods with different global risk perceptions.
