The findings show that finance directors share with the corporate loan managers the concerns of corporate stakeholders’ interests and the importance of shareholders and creditors as complementary sources of financing. Regarding the stakeholders’ effects on banks performance, the results show that: banks’ support to shareholders interests is positively associated with banks profitability and liquidity, banks support to suppliers’ interest is positively associated with banks’ profitability, capital adequacy, and asset quality, banks’ support to the creditors’ interest is positively associated with bank’s liquidity. Banks’ support to unions, suppliers, and government relations is positively associated with bank’s liquidity, and banks’ support to corporate employees and managers is positively associated with bank’s asset quality. Overall, the results conclude that banks’ performance is positively associated with their orientations toward fulfilling corporate stakeholders’ interests.
