How has the adoption of Internet banking affected performance and risk in banks?

Analysis of banks in Tenth District states that have adopted Internet banking shows an adoption rate that is similar to the rate for the United States. Community banks, especially in rural areas, are lagging behind other banks in introducing Internet banking. ; Banks that have adopted Internet banking have introduced it in markets with demographic and economic characteristics that help to ensure customer acceptance. They have also used the Internet in a way that complements their business strategy. Banks who offer Internet banking rely more on non-core funding, and are developing the Internet ...

Causal Impact of Risk Oversight Functions on Bank Risk: Evidence from a Natural Experiment

Our goal is to document the causal impact of having a board-level risk committee (RC) and a management-level executive designated as chief risk officer (CRO) on bank risk. The Dodd Frank Act requires bank holding companies with over $10 billion of assets to have an RC, while those with over $50 billion of assets are additionally required to have a CRO to oversee risk management. The innovation that allows us to document a causal impact is our research design. First, we use the passage of the Dodd Frank Act as a natural experiment that forced noncompliant firms to adopt an RC and appoint a ...

On the need for a new approach to analyzing monetary policy

We present a pricing kernel that summarizes well the main features of the dynamics of interest rates and risk in postwar U.S. data and use it to uncover how the pricing kernel has moved with the short rate. Our findings imply that standard monetary models miss an essential link between the central bank instrument and the economic activity that monetary policy is intended to affect, and thus we call for a new approach to monetary policy analysis. We sketch a new approach using an economic model based on our pricing kernel. The model incorporates the key relationships between policy and risk ...

Fragility of reputation and clustering of risk-taking

Concerns about constructing and maintaining good reputations are known to reduce borrowers' excessive risk-taking. However, I find that the self-discipline induced by these concerns is fragile, and can break down without obvious changes in economic fundamentals. Furthermore, in the aggregate, breakdowns are clustered among borrowers with intermediate and good reputations, which can exacerbate an economy's weakness and contribute to a broad economic crisis. These results come from an aggregate dynamic global game analysis of reputation formation in credit markets. The selection of a unique ...

An analysis of inefficiencies in banking: a stochastic cost frontier approach

This paper examines the properties of X-inefficiencies in U.S. banking firms. We find that, after controlling for scale differences, the average small size banking firm is less efficient than the aerate large firm. Smaller firms also exhibit higher variation in X-inefficiencies than their larger counterparts. X-inefficiency on average appears to be declining over time. However, the rank ordering of X-inefficiency is significantly correlated with smaller banking firms' stock returns. ; Published in FRBSF Economic Review (1996 no. 2, p. 16-26)
