Paul Pelzl(VU Amsterdam & Tinbergen Institute) wird sein Paper "Capital Regulations and Credit Line Management during Crisis Times" vorstellen.
Die Veranstaltung findet in Raum D4.4.008 von 11:00-12:15 Uhr statt.
Abstract: Credit line drawdowns by firms reduce a bank’s regulatory capital ratio. Using the Austrian Credit Register we provide novel evidence that during the 2008-09 financial crisis, banks with a distressed capital position managed this concern by substantially cutting little-used credit lines. Controlling for a bank’s capital position, we also find that greater liquidity problems induced banks to considerably cut little-used credit lines over 2008-09. These results suggest that banks actively manage both capital and liquidity risk caused by undrawn credit lines in periods of financial distress, but thereby reduce liquidity provision to firms exactly when they need it most.
