The importance of bank seniority for relationship lending

Stanley D. Longhofer and Joao Santos

No 9808, Working Papers (Old Series) from Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland

Abstract: The authors examine two aspects of a bank's interaction with its borrowers--the relative priority of bank debt and the role of banks as "relationship lenders." They show that making the bank senior improves its incentives to build a relationship with the firm, thereby fulfilling an important function of intermediated debt.
