The procyclicality of banking in the euro area

Huizing, Harry and Laeven Luc (2019), “The procyclicality of banking in the euro area“, VOX CEPR Policy Portal, Mάιος

A high procyclicality of banks’ loan loss provisioning is undesirable from a financial stability perspective, as it implies that bank capitalisations are more negatively affected at the trough of the business cycle, exactly when capital market conditions for banks are at their weakest. This column finds that provisioning procyclicality in the euro area is about twice as high as in other countries. This has important implications for the supervision of euro area banks going forward.
