Abstract. This study aims to analyze the effect of COVID-19 on banking resilience in Indonesia and to investigate whether there are differences in the effect of COVID-19 on Islamic and conventional banks. Using panel regression with robust standard error on 38 conventional banks and sharia banks going public in Indonesia, covering the period before the COVID-19 pandemic (Q3 2018-Q4 2019) and during the COVID-19 pandemic (Q1 2020 – Q2 2021), it shows that the existence of the covid-19 crisis has a significant effect on all bank financial performance indicators, but not significant on all bank risk indicators. Using the independent t-Test test with the assumption of unequal variance and Welch correction, this study conducts a comparative test based on six panels of criteria and found that Islamic banks are more resilient than conventional banks.Keywords: Resilience, Bank Financial Performance, Bank Risk, Covid-19 Abstrak.
