Entry and Strategic Information Display in Credit Markets
AbstractThe Riegle-Neal Act in the US and the Economic and Monetary Union in Europe are recent initiatives to stimulate financial integration. These initiatives allow new entrants to "poach" the incumbents' clients by offering them attractive loan offers. We show that these deregulations may be insufficient since asymmetric information seriously hampers the integration of credit markets. Moreover, banks may strategically display some information hindering the scale of entry when asymmetric information is moderate. We also show that voluntary information sharing emerges only when asymmetric information is low.
