Metasebiay Boru Lelissa


The study aims to explore the critical bank specific and personal factors that have a bearing on the selection of banks by customers. It has employed an exploratory factor analysis on the 101 questionnaire having 38 component factors. The wide individual items in the questionnaire therefore are simplified and summarized in a gross component. The components are also run in a regression model that links the independent variables that describe bank selection factors with customer loyalty. The result on individual factors identified  four critical factors that determine choice of commercial banks in Ethiopia: the speed of services is among the best in the industry, the extent of the branch network is adequate, the location of branches is appropriate and forex resources are easy to get in the bank. Component wise, the study finds that service quality and availability as well as the quality and accessibility of physical and human resources appear to be the major determinant factor in bank choice. The regression result also shows that the abovementioned factors not only influence customer bank choice but has also impact on their loyalty level.
