Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the determinants of intellectual capital performance in Egyptian banks over the period 2007-2010. Multiple regression analysis is used to test the relationship between intellectual capital performance as a dependent variable and certain independent variables. Results indicate that the variables of global financial crisis, market structure, bank size, bank profitability and bank age have a significant impact on the intellectual capital performance of Egyptian banks. The study might draw the attention of the banking regulators to the factors which might influence intellectual capital performance and hence they will be able to guide the banks to maximise their performance in the context of value creation. This study adds to the literature on the determinants of intellectual capital performance in banks. In particular, it tests the newly introduced theories that global financial crisis and market structure have an impact on intellectual capital performance.

Keywords: intellectual capital performance; global financial crisis; GFC; market structure; bank size; bank profitability; bank age; banks; Egypt; banking industry; bank performance.
