The Essex Finance Centre (EFiC) warmly invites you to join the research seminar with Professor Elena Loutskina from the University of Virginia Darden School of Business.

Seminar abstract

This paper shows that by reducing the cyclicality of deposit funding and internal funds (profits), deposit market power reduces banks’ funding risk and provides the flexibility to originate long-term loans. Banks with deposit HHI one standard deviation above average extend loans with about 20% longer maturity than those one standard deviation below average. Deposit market power also allows banks to charge lower maturity premiums. This has real effects: access to banks raising funds in less competitive markets improves growth in bank-dependent borrowers needing long-term finance. Deposit market power, by stabilizing bank funding costs, helps alleviate credit cycles.
