Nikolina Palamidovska-Sterjadovska, Anita Ciunova-Shuleska

In today’s competitive environment, creating and maintaining customer satisfaction and consequently customer loyalty is of vital importance to the companies. At the same time, it is a challenging task because little is known about how customers differ in their relational preferences (Palmatier et al., 2006) and because there are a lot of variables that influence customer loyalty. Although customers tend to be more demanding and less loyal (Reichheld, 1996), service marketers are convinced that building enduring relationships with the customers is incredibly important because loyal customers are less costly to serve, buy more, pay premium prices and spread positive word-of-mouth (Zeithaml, 2000; O’Brian & Jones, 1995).

Jana Laštůvková

The interest in bank liquidity has grown significantly in recent times not only among regulators, but in authors’ studies as well.
