ABSTRACT

Financial performance requires appropriate internal audit practices to enhance efficiency.

For the purpose of this study the researcher sought to determine the effect of internal

audit on financial performance in commercial bank (Stanbic bank). Internal audit was

looked at from the perspective of internal audit standards, professional competency,

internal controls and independence of internal audit. The study selected one senior

manager in the finance department. The researcher administered a survey questionhaire

to each member of the target population since it was the most appropriate tool to gather

information. Quantitative analysis and regression analysis were used as data analysis

technique. Descriptive statistics such as mean, standard deviation and frequency

distribution were used in the analysis of data. Data presentation was done by use of tables

for ease of understanding and interpretation. From the findings, the study concludes that

internal audit standards, independence of internal audit, professional competency and

internal control had a positive relationship with financial performance of commercial

banks, the study found that a unit increase in internal audit standards would lead to

increase in financial performance of commercial banks, a unit increase in independence of

internal audit would lead to increase in financial performance of commercial banks, a unit

increase in professional competency would lead to increase in financial performance of

conunercial banks and further unit increase in internal control would lead to increase in

financial performance of commercial banks. The study recommends that management in

commercial bank (stanbic bank) should adopt effective internal audit practices such as

internal auditing standards, independence of internal audit, professional competency and

internal controls to enhance financial performance of the banks.
