Financial institutions, asymmetric information and capital structure adjustments

Abstract: Capital structure studies of financial institutions have observed identical facts to those of non-financial corporations, especially in relation to capital structure adjustments (dynamic trade-off theory) and asymmetric information. This study examined data from 64 NYSE-listed financial corporations for 91 quarters through Johansen-Fisher panel cointegration model. The target capital structure was measured by the average D/E for the entire period and asymmetric information was measured by Corwin-Schultz´s S_2.
