Abstract: Intellectual capital becomes the integral part in the development of successful organization lately. Most of the organizations and banks in Islamic countries and Iran are started to shift in practicing intellectual capital since knowing the important of it. Intellectual capital is defined as intangible assets that include technology, customer information, brand name, reputation and corporate culture that are invaluable to a firm‟s competitive power. In a contemporary business environment, intellectual capital is considered as the most critical strategic asset for the success of the organization. Intellectual capital is a life blood of the high -tech and knowledge intensive organizations. Banking sector is considered as a knowledge intensive segment. Therefore, there is a great need to nourish the concept and applications of intellectual capital in banking sector. In Islamic countries, banking sector is mainly based on conventional banking sector and Islamic banking sector.

Abstract: Financial evaluation is the part and parcel of the business performance evaluation and it is more tangibly discussed in the banking industry due to the central role that banks play in the supply and demand mechanisms of money and credit in the economic system.However, financial evaluation, by and large,has been confined to financial performance assessment. In this study, we present a tripartite framework for assessing and rating banks in accordance with their financial performance, financial strength and financial distress status using 33 criteria. We utilize entropy and TOPSIS methods respectively for weighting and rating of banks. We utilize data from ten commercial banks listed on Tehran Stock Exchange (TSE). The contributions of the study is two-fold. Firstly, we utilize diverse quantitative and qualitative factors to account for the financial performance, financial strength and financial distress positions of the banks which give new perspectives into the financial stability of the banks. Secondly, the proposedframework can be used extensively in the banking industry as well as other settings for short-term, medium-term and long-term evaluations.The result of the study shows that banks A10, A6 and A3 have averaged the best along all three ratings. KEYWORD Financial Performance, Financial Strength, TOPSIS, Rating, Banking. INTRODUCTION inancial stability evaluation is the fulcrum of the banks’ overall performance evaluation and its significance has been doubled since the failure of the banking system and the shattering of the creditors’ confidence due to the frailties in the banks’ governance structure and investors’ foci on *Corresponding Author: Amir HosseinRahdari E-mail: Telephone Number: +98 9127197785 myopic short-term-oriented measures during the financial crisis.Financial industry is ranked as the third industry on Tehran Stock Exchange (TSE) based on market capitalization and banking is the most important sector of financial industry by taking 71% of the value of the industry [1]. While banks have outperform most of the other industries except for petrochemicals in the recent years, their financial ranking is based on a limited market-oriented model that cannot reflect their long-term financial viability. Furthermore, due the paucity of presence of local or International rating agencies in a number of developing countries including Iran, rating systems, frameworks and indices that enable researchers and professionals to evaluate financial performance of companies in a more effective and efficient manner are of great interest. Nonetheless, two precautions need to be taken. Firstly, the proposed rating systems should be both simple and applicable such that researcher and professionals can easily cultivate them using the available data. Secondly, it should be effective and can provide insightful information as to companies’ performance. There have been some efforts in evaluating the banks performance in Iran. For instance, Shaverdi used TOPSIS, VIKOR and ELECTRE and integrated them with BSC to evaluate the performance of three private banks. No significant difference was found between TOPSIS, VIKOR and ELECTRE rankings [2]. This study focuses on presenting a tripartite rating framework using Entropy-TOPSIS that evaluates financial performance, financial strength and financial distress using 33 criteria in the banking industry. The information required for such evaluation is publically available through financial statements and other reporting media. Our use of Piotroski’s construct is circumscribed to its criteria rather than its explanatory power and theoretical implications. Therefore, we use the appellation of financial distress rating for this construct.The rest of the paper is organized in the following manner. First, the chosen measures and the raison d'être behind their selection alongside the proposed tripartite financial rating framework will be explained. Then, the A Tripartite Financial Rating Framework for the Banking Industry: Financial Performance, Strength and Distress Rating Amir HosseinRahdari 1, *, Armin Vojoudi Nobakht 2 and Omid EsmailPour 3 1 Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran 2 AllamehTabatabaiUniversity, Tehran, Iran Islamic Azad University, Science and Research Branch, Qom, Iran
