Funding structure, procyclicality and lending: Evidence from GCC banks

Saibal Ghosh

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The paper examines whether banks’ funding structure amplifies procyclicality. Using data for GCC banks for the period 1996-2009, the evidence suggests that banks with higher wholesale dependence cut back lending by a greater amount. In addition, the procyclicality of the financial system and the crisis exacerbates the effect, although the results differ across bank ownership
