Bank Competition and Firm Growth in the Enlarged European Union

  • Gábor Pellényi
  • Tamás Borkó
Registered author(s):

    We examine the impact of bank competition and institutional factors on net firm entry in a sample of European manufacturing industries over the 1995-2006 period. Taking into account industry differences in the need for external finance, we find that bank competition helps firm entry. In addition, better institutions - especially legal structure and property rights - also have a positive impact, particularly through a better functioning financial system.
