Dieser Artikel untersucht die Kreditvergabe von Banken in Zeiten erhöhter Risikoaversion. Wir untersuchen die Reaktionen deutscher Banken während der Asien- und der Russlandkrise unter Verwendung von Einzelbankdaten der Deutschen Bundesbank. Eine Untersuchung dieser Frage kann Aufschluss darüber geben, welche Rolle Banken allgemein in der Übertragung von Währungs- und Wirtschaftskrisen in Schwellenländern spielen. Die empirischen Resultate zeigen, dass die deutschen Kreditinstitute auf die Asienkrise vorwiegend mit Portfolioumschichtungen innerhalb ihres Kreditportfolios aufstrebender Schwellenländer antworteten. Dabei zeigt sich, dass die privaten Kreditbanken stärker reagierten als die Landesbanken. Im Gegensatz dazu war das Verhalten der Banken während der Russlandkrise stark durch einen generellen Rückzug aus allen Schwellenländern gekennzeichnet, wobei Unterschiede zwischen den beiden untersuchten Bankengruppen weniger deutlich als während der Asienkrise zutage traten.
