Theoretische Analyse der Gewinnsituation im deutschen Bankensektor: Kreditvergabestrategie sichert Sparkassen und Genossenschaftsbanken Vorteile

Die Rendite von Sparkassen und Genossenschaftsbanken liegt in Deutschland über der von privaten Geschäftsbanken. Das vorliegende Papier bietet einen theoretischen Erklärungsansatz, der diese Renditeunterschiede auf Differenzen in der Kreditvergabestrategie zurückführt. Dieses Modell zeigt, dass Finanzintermediäre, die ihre Informationen über Kunden durch langfristige Kreditbeziehungen generieren, einen Vorteil gegenüber solchen Banken haben, die bei ihrer Kreditvergabe auf handelbare Informationen setzen. Bezogen auf die Situation im deutschen Bankensektor bedeutet dies, dass Sparkassen, aber auch Genossenschaftsbanken durch ihre beziehungsbasierte Kreditvergabestrategie einen Vorteil gegenüber solchen Banken haben, die in erster Linie auf der Grundlage handelbarer Informationen operieren.
