Abstract: Using confidential credit-registry data on the universe of bank loans, we characterize the monthly behavior of relationship lending in Chile between 2012 and 2019. We focus on two aspects of relationships between firms and banks: their closeness, and their concentration. We uncover four stylized facts about relationships lending: their behavior through time, cyclical properties, properties of credit contracts in relationships, and the effect of relationships on monetary policy transmission. Our results show that relationship lending plays an important role in credit allocation and in the implementation of financial policies.
