© 2020 Elsevier Inc. We examine technical efficiency of Islamic and conventional banks. We contribute to the literature by applying a stochastic meta-frontier directional distance function model with undesirable output, which helps to overcome misestimating technical efficiency. For a sample of banks from 28 countries, we find that a typical Islamic bank is less technically efficient compared to its conventional counterpart. This is due to Islamic banks using less advanced technology compared to conventional banks rather than group-specific technical inefficiency. The findings are robust across six geographical regions of the world.
