All banks great, small, and global: Loan pricing and foreign competition
AbstractUsing a new model of heterogeneous, imperfectly competitive lenders and a simple search process, we show how endogenous markups (the net interest margin commonly used to proxy lending-to-deposit rate spreads) can increase with FDI while the rates banks charge to borrowers remain largely unchanged or actually fall. We contrast the competitive effects from cross-border bank takeovers with those of cross-border lending by banks located overseas, which in most cases reduces markups and interest rates. Although both types of liberalization can increase the cost-efficiency of lending in the liberalizing country, the distinction arises because opening toward cross-border lending increases competitive pressures (contestability) in the credit market, while takeovers do not. Both policies can increase aggregate output and generate permanent current account imbalances.
