2017 AAP Nouvelle Aquitaine Project

Bank Governance, Financial Stability and Macroeconomic Performance

This project aims to provide a rigorous investigation into the expected responses of banks to the tightening of bank capital and liquidity mandated by Basel III and the identification of SIFIs and the estimation of their systemic risk contribution. The expected responses might indeed be critical for the economy as a whole and reshuffle financing flows towards emerging economies. Such developments will build on an approach focusing on differences in governance structures within banks themselves and on the institutional environment in Europe, Asia and the U.S. Specifically, we analyze the reactions of banks with different ownership structures to changes in regulatory requirements in a low interest rate environment where banks, in general, might be inclined to hold riskier assets. We assess not only changes in their risk-taking behavior but also variations in their capital structures and their lending behavior. This project mobilizes four research teams from the Nouvelle Aquitaine region : LAREFI and GREThA (Université de Bordeaux), CRIEF (Université de Poitiers) and LAPE (Université de Limoges) as well as a team from outside the region (LEO, Université d’Orléans) and foreign researchers recognized worldwide for their expertise and actively collaborating with the teams from the region. By bringing together complementary skills in various fields of specialization (Economics, Banking, Corporate Finance, Market Finance...), this project will hence contribute to a better understanding of failures of the financial system and can also enhance our understanding of how to monitor and curb bank risk-taking behavior without jeopardizing lending. Moreover, how the implications of the changes in bank lending behavior at the macroeconomic level and how the interaction of micro and macro prudential tools and non-conventional monetary policies impact equilibrium is another challenge of this project.


Prof. Amine Tarazi was invited at the 4th Annual Chapman Money and Finance Conference in California. In his speech, he discussed some of the projects carried out in the AAP Nouvelle Aquitaine and ANR CaLiBank Projects.
