Abstract

This paper attempts to depict the required equations for applying the RAROC paradigm for the Lebanese banks as it is currently the only practicable solution to capital budgeting problems. We used the RAROC as a proxy for value creation assessment. Our empirical study showed an outstanding economic profit for the home loans line of business; earnings exceeded the required return on capital by 5.2% compared to a hurdle rate of 8.5%. This line of business has positively contributed to the overall value of these banks. We were unable however to measure the diversification benefit of this line of business.
