Banks' lending decisions after loan acquisitions: do banks favour pre-existing relationships?

$47.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

This article examines the lending decisions of Korean banks after they acquire loan portfolios from failed banks. We find that a firm's pre-existing relationships positively affect the continuation of those relationships, and that pre-existing relationships negatively impact increases in loan size, once those relationships are maintained. These results suggest that banks have a conflict of interest that comes with pre-existing lending relationships, and that bank quality does not necessarily convey the risk classes of its client firms.
