Then, the similar banks and institutions were classified in the form of homogeneous groups using by the Hierarchical Clustering Analysis (HCA). The quality and validity of each of the clusters created was confirmed by using Discriminant Analysis (DA) and finally, were discussed the characteristics of each of these clusters. The findings suggest that there is not a significant difference in terms of speed of loading between the clusters, but in other indexes, the difference between clusters is significant.
