Abstract

This paper tests the role of different banks� liquidity funding structures in explaining the bank failures that occurred in the United States between 2007 and 2009. The results highlight that funding is indeed a significant factor in explaining banks� probability of default. By confirming the role of funding as a driver of banking crisis, the paper also recognizes that the new liquidity framework proposed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision appears to have the features needed to strengthen banks� liquidity conditions and improve financial stability. Its correct implementation, together with closer supervision of banks� liquidity and funding conditions, appear decisive, however, if such improvements are to be achieved.
