Working Papers from Dipartimento Scienze Economiche, Universita' di Bologna

Abstract: We estimate a model of credit risk for portfolios of Small and Medium-sized enterprises, conditional on being a non-profit or for-profit firms. The estimation is based on a unique dataset on Italian firms provided by a large commercial bank. We show that the main variables to identify creditworthiness are different for non-profit and for-profit firms. Traditional balance sheet information seems to be less crucial for non-profit firms.
