The Journal of International Money and Finance (JIMF) has published a new study by Dr. Matias Ossandon Busch, from CEMLA’s Directorate of Financial Stability, in coauthorship with Dr. Helge C. N. Littke from the Deutsche Bundesbank. The paper is titled Banks fearing the drought? Liquidity hoarding as a response to idiosyncratic interbank funding dry-ups, and it provides evidence on the effect of bank-specific interbank funding shocks in Brazil on the credit supply of bank branches in Brazilian regions.
The European Money and Finance Forum (SUERF) has also published a policy note summarizing the paper’s main findings. The policy note is available online in the following link.
