Tracing Out Capital Flows: How Financially Integrated Banks Respond to Natural Disasters

Kristle Cortes and Philip E. Strahan

No 14-12R, Working Papers (Old Series) from Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland

Abstract: Multimarket banks reallocate capital when local credit demand increases after natural disasters. Using property damage as an instrument for lending growth, we find credit in unaffected but connected markets declines by a little less than 50 cents per dollar of additional lending in shocked areas. However, banks shield their core markets because most of the decline comes from loans in areas where banks do not own branches. Moreover, banks increase sales of more-liquid loans and they bid up the prices of deposits in the connected markets. These actions help lessen the impact of the demand shock on credit supply.
