One size fits all? The differential impact of parent capital on bank failures
Russell Triplett and
Finance Research Letters, 2019, vol. 29, issue C, 136-140
Recent regulations increased minimum capital standards for bank holding companies. We test the effectiveness of this action in preventing bank failures during the sub-prime mortgage crisis. We find that while holding company capital is the most influential variable in the failures of banks affiliated with multi-bank holding companies, this is not the case for banks affiliated with a one-bank holding company. For these banks, the bank's own characteristics are more influential than group capital, meaning the established standards may not be universally effective.
