The GMM estimation method is used for a data sample of 21 commercial banks in Vietnam (excluding overseas branches) from 2008 to 2019 to evaluate the factors affecting commercial banks' capital adequacy ratio (CAR). The results show that not only do bank-specific factors such as size, leverage ratio, loan ratio, deposit ratio, and profitability affect CAR adjustment, but so do macro factors such as GDP growth rate, regulatory pressure, and banking system restructuring. As a result, the study will help commercial banks develop more solid foundations for CAR implementation strategies. Simultaneously, The State Bank of Vietnam will have a basis with the regulatory agency to introduce and/or adjust capital adequacy regulations in line with the reality of commercial banks in Vietnam.
