Interbank Lending, Credit Risk Premia and Collateral (Heider F., Hoerova M.)

Financial Crises Interbank Markets Liquidity Risk-taking and Risk Management

Abstract We study the functioning of secured and unsecured interbank markets in the presence of credit risk. The model generates empirical predictions that are in line with developments during the 2007-2009 financial crises. Interest rates decouple across secured and unsecured markets following an adverse shock to credit risk. The scarcity of underlying collateral may amplify the volatility of interest rates in secured markets. We use the model to discuss various policy responses to the crisis.
