What drives interbank loans? Evidence from Canada

Abstract: We find that collateral reallocation costs are a significant driver of the dynamics of overnight interbank loans. The cost of negotiating and settling collateralized over-the-counter trades incentivizes the temporary use of unsecured loans to meet changes in short-term liquidity needs, as well as greater uptake of central bank overnight lending facilities. This friction also leads to repos adjusting gradually in response to persistent changes in liquidity demand.
