Abstract: This paper empirically examines the determinants of credit at different maturities across countries of the European Union during the last decade. We document the lengthening of maturities since the early 2000s and whether these patterns were driven by similar factors in advanced and emerging market economies. Before the 2008 crisis, long†term credit expanded faster than short†term credit in most countries of our sample and contracted less than short†term credit after 2008. We find that foreign liabilities were more important sources of funding in emerging market countries than in advanced economies. In addition, aggregate demand mattered less for credit extension to firms in emerging market countries than in advanced countries.
