Bank Relationships: Effect on the Availability and Marginal Cost of Credit for Firms in Argentina (Streb J. M., Bolzico J., Druck P. F., Henke A., Rutman J., Sosa-Escudero W.)

Bank-Borrower Relationships Information Asymmetry and Transparency

Abstract This paper provides evidence on what affects the marginal cost and availability of bank credit for firms in Argentina. We study in particular how banks use different pieces of private and public information to screen firms and overcome informational asymmetries in the credit market. While some private information, such as balance sheet data, is transferable, private information generated in relationships is not. To capture the closeness of bank relationships, we resort to the concentration of bank credit and the number of credit lines in a bank. We also consider public information available in the Central de Deudores.
