ABSTRACT. Hirtle examines the relationship between the amount of information disclosed by bank holding companies (BHCs) and their subsequent risk profile and performance. Hänsel and Krahnen suggest that credit securitization goes hand-in-hand with an increase in the risk appetite of the issuing bank. Kinnunen and Vehviläinen observe that commercial banks expecting a depreciation of the domestic currency will expect a lower average return on lending (which leads them to accept a higher variance for their lending portfolio).
