Trans-Tasman cooperation in banking supervision and resolution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Banks that straddle borders may not only do so via foreign subsidiaries; they can also conduct their cross-border banking activities via a branch or directly to customers. Existing studies on the impact of cross-border banking often focus on the cross-border activities via foreign subsidiaries. We use a unique hand-collected dataset with cross-border activities for the 61 largest European banks to study the impact cross-border banking has on the risk-return profile of an individual bank. Our results show that cross-border banking decreases banks’ risk, by lowering the insolvency risk and generating a more stable income profile.
