Brown Bag Seminar - Sebastian Doerr

23. März 2023

Wir freuen uns, für 23. März 2023, ein Brown Bag Seminar ankündigen zu können.

Als Vortragenden dürfen wir Sebastian Doerr (Bank for International Settlements) begrüßen.

Er wird sein Paper “Privacy regulation and fintech lending" (mit L. Gambacorta, L. Guiso und M. Sanchez del Villar) vorstellen.

Abstract: This paper studies how the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a privacy law that grants users control their data and assuages concerns over sharing it, affects lending markets. To guide our empirical analysis we build a model with banks and a fintech that use data to screen applicants. The fintech has a superior screening technology, but applicants dislike sharing their data with it. The model predicts that privacy regulation makes applicants more willing to share their data, so loan applications with the fintech increase. More data allow for better screening and enable the fintech to offer lower interest rates. We empirically show that the introduction of the CCPA increases mortgage applications with fintechs relative to banks in California. Consistent with applicants’ greater willingness to share data, fintechs make greater use of non-traditional data to improve screening. In turn, they deny more applications and offer more favourable rates.

Das Brown Bag Seminar findet am 23. März 2023 von 13:00-14:00 Uhr im Raum D3.0.225 statt.
