Abstract: This thesis attempts to investigate the efficiency of the strategies of recapitalization on stabilizing of the operational performance of the four systemic banks in Greece. In addition, an attempt was made on evaluating the impact of such strategies on several financial indicators of those banks.The analysis focuses on the following indicators; deposits, loans, equity, return on equity, return on assets and non performing loans. This study uses the quantitative research method in order to provide a descriptive analysis of the above mentioned indicators. Furthermore, the descriptive analysis is used for linking and evaluating the performance of each of the indicators with the recapitalization strategies that have been implemented on the Greek banking sector for the past decade. The study uses a series of hypotheses that are tested based on the results of the analysis and the background research. Severallimitations were observed throughout the process mainly linked with the need to incorporate the qualitative research method as well as time and budged constrains. The results showed that the strategies that have been implemented over the past decade have had noticeable results on maintaining the functionality of the banks mainly through the liquidity infusion. In addition, the results showed that the deposits have benefited from the strategies implemented mainly through a more solid banking system that increases the credibility of the banks in the eyes of the customers. The main problem that still needs to be addressed is the issue of Non Performing Loans where the results show no signs of having being made any significant progress. The implementation of new strategies on addressing these issues is recommended in order to have a reduction of the NPLs and a further consolidation of the banking system.
