Concerted Lending: Did Large Banks Bear The Burden?

Abstract

A game-theoretic model of lending with banks heterogeneous by size is introduced in which atomistic small banks free ride on the relending efforts of a large bank. An empirically-testable corollary conclusion suggests that "news" concerning the underlying economic condition of the debtor nation will have a greater impact on the large bank. This empirical prediction is validated for the Latin American Crisis period using evidence from long-term bond spread data. Poolings of cross-sectional time-series data reveal that the equity values of large banks are relatively more sensitive to adverse "news" concerning the quality of Latin American loans.
