Findings of the results indicatethe mathematical model consists of a probability space, a Brownian motion and aPoisson process. The jumps are independent and identically distributed. The approachconsists of defining a notion of risk and production instrument asset qualityin order to minimize the risk. To empirically evaluate performance of the banks,different financial ratios are employed which are based on CAMEL frameworkduring the period 2011-2015. We measure performance in terms of capital adequacy,asset quality, management, earnings and liquidity. In this work, descriptivestatistics, one-way Annova and regression analysis are used to make hypothesistest and determine the ratio significance. Consequently, results from empiricalanalysis indicate that there is difference in profitability determinants.
