They assumed six key variables that would affect the performance of both micro-lenders and commercial banks. This includes the percentage change in their net operating income; return on equity; profit margin; percentage change in total assets; percentage change in loan portfolio; and the change in the portfolio at risk. The tentative conclusions, because of the limited available data on micro-lenders, suggest that micro-lenders are less correlated with equity indices than are commercial banks against one or more parameter. Micro-lenders are also far less correlated than are comparable commercial banks with domestic macro conditions. They indeed represent lower country risk than shares in banks.
