Foreign Lenders and the Real Sector

Leo Ferraris () and Raoul Minetti

Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, 2007, vol. 39, issue 4, 945-964

Abstract: We develop a theory of the interaction between the entry of lenders and the real sector. The high liquidation skills of incumbent lenders render them too tough in terminating high-risk/return projects. Being "foreign" to the market, newcomers have lower ability to liquidate than incumbents. This makes them softer in liquidating high-risk/return projects but renders their funding more costly. We show that the entry of lenders and the share of high-risk/return projects can reinforce each other through firms' liquidation values. This interaction dampens the output impact of liquidity shocks. Hence, financial liberalization can enhance stability. Copyright 2007 The Ohio State University.
