"Rollover Risk and Bank Lending Behavior: Evidence from Unconventional Central Bank Liquidity" (with C. Mendicino and D. Supera)

Abstract: How does a sudden reduction in debt rollover risk affect the lending behavior of banks?

We show that a reduction in rollover risk has a positive and economically sizable impact on bank lending to the real economy. Our findings highlight stronger effects on the supply of credit to small, younger, riskier firms and firms with shorter lending relationships. We also find that loan-level results translate to real and credit effects at the firm-level.
