Competition in Banking


Degryse, Hans; Morales Acevedo, Adiana Paola; Ongena, Steven (2015). Competition in Banking. In: Berger, Allen N; Molyneux, Philip; Wilson, John O S. The Oxford Handbook of Banking. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 589-616.

Abstract

This chapter combines recent findings from the empirical banking literature with established insights from studies of banking competition and regulation. It starts with a concise overview and assessment of the different methodological approaches taken to address banking competition. While market structure indicators are readily available, they may not be overly informative about the competitive conditions in banking markets. The literature has focused to date on “non-market structure” indicators such as the Panzar-Rosse H-statistic, the Lerner index, and the Boone indicator. The chapter then structures a discussion on the empirical findings based upon a framework that finds its roots in the different theories of financial intermediation. Many other specific approaches to infer banking competition are discussed, in particular, the impact that regulation and information-sharing between banks may have on banking competition.
