Estratto:

We explore how state Universal Demand statutes (UD) that decrease litigation risks in the adopting states, affect Bank Holding Companies (BCHs)’ risk profile.

Using a difference-in-differences analysis, we show that the UD laws curtail BHCs’ market risk and tail risk exposures.

We document that banks attain such an effect by lowering their credit supply, particularly to relatively risky borrowers.

We also show, as a further lending mechanism, that BHCs have improved their monitoring capabilities by applying stricter contract terms for syndicate loans to risky borrowers.
