How does relationship banking influence credit financing? Evidence from the financial crisis
AbstractDuring the financial crisis asymmetric information in credit markets became moresevere. Did relationship banking help firms to avoid impaired credit financing andwhich credit financing problems did relationship banking help to circumvent? We usesurvey data for 1,139 German firms to analyze how relationship banking works. Wefind that it lowers the probability of higher information requirements from banks. Itdoes not, however, help to avoid constrained availability of bank credit. If credit isgranted, relationship banking makes deteriorated non-price contract terms (i.e. collateraland maturity) less likely. Its impact on interest rates is ambiguous.
