Efficient Banking under Interstate Branching

Author

  • Hughes, Joseph P, et al

Abstract

Nationally chartered banks will be allowed to branch across state lines beginning June 1, 1997. Whether they will depends on their assessment of the profitability of such a delivery system for their services and on their preferences regarding risk and return. The authors investigate the probable effect of interstate branching on banks' risk-return trade-off, accounting for the endogeneity of deposit volatility. If interstate branching improves the risk-return trade-off banks face, then banks that branch across state lines may choose a higher level of risk in return for higher profits. The authors find efficiency gains due to geographic diversity. Coauthors are William Lang, Loretta J. Mester, and Choon-Geol Moon. Copyright 1996 by Ohio State University Press.
