The Most Expected Things Often Come as a Surprise: Analysis of the Impact of Monetary Surprises on the Bank's Risk and Activity

Abstract : In this paper, we analyse the link between monetary and banks’ activity and risk-taking. Some theoretical and empirical studies show that monetary easing increases banks’ appetite for risk, affect credit allocation and bank’s profitability. Our study adds to analyses of the monetary risk-taking channel considering monetary surprise, i.e. the impact of unexpected changes in monetary policy on bank’s risk and activity. Using a dataset of US banks, we find that higher increase or lower decrease of interest rates than expected (negative surprise) leads banks to take more risk, to grant more corporate loans than consumption loans, and to be more profitable. We complement the literature on the risk-taking channel and provide arguments that Central Banks can manage financial stability.
