How Deregulation Spurs Growth "Regulatory reforms - in particular those that liberalize entry - are very likely to spur investment; tight regulation of product markets restricts investment. A common view is that greater regulation in continental markets has retarded investment and economic growth - and that this was particularly important in the late s, a period of significant technological innovation.

However, adding a risk premium to earlier accounting returns models by resorting to an ARCH-M procedure, an updated sample reveals that the Canadian banks risk-return trade-off displays a structural break, around In the second subperiod of our sample, we find that the share of noninterest income no longer negatively impacts banks returns.
Relatedly, we find that a risk premium emerges while, in the first periodthe volatility variable is not significant in any returns equations. Our results are thus consistent with a maturation process story.
Regulatory changes; Noninterest income; Diversification; Structural break; Risk premium. The evolution in the Canadian financial system gave way to a major change in corporate financing, characterized with a relative decreased share of banks loans i.
This financial transformation challenged the Canadian banking business and justified, in part, the successive amendments to the Canadian Bank Act.
These amendments enabled banks to act as security dealers and offer fiduciary services and portfolio advices to investors 2. They also allowed banks to securitize loans, a move in line with the on-going financial deepening process. At first, banks might have thought that these new types of activities would have led to important diversification benefits, with an improvement in their risk-return trade-off RoseSauders and Walters Indeed, the decision to diversify might be considered endogenous Campa and KediaStiroh and Rumble and the result of an optimization process, theoretically leading to a better risk-return trade-off on an expanded efficient frontier.
OBS activities triggered a substantial increase in the volatility of banks' net operating revenue growth Acharya et al. Actually, these measures of banks returns decreased with the upward trend in the share of noninterest income. Given the direct link between accounting measures of bank performance and the level and volatility of bank market returns, this situation might be perceived as problematic by banks stakeholders.
In this paper, we first confirm that the surge in the OBS activities actually increases the banking system riskiness. We argue that noninterest income, being more related to aggregate shocks compared to interest income, increases the exposure of Canadian banks to market conditions, and more generally to macroeconomic shocks, which are not easily diversifiable and whose relative importance tends to grow relative to idiosyncratic shocks Houston and Stiroh Second, we focus on the change in the risk-return trade-off and the integration of traditional lending and OBS activities.

Our results are consistent with a maturation process story. As it is usually the case, financial markets and institutions eventually adjust to financial innovations, even if the adjustment is generally slow to materialize Caballero and Engle In this respect, the main contribution of this paper is to resort to a new empirical framework to study the recent change in the relationship between various measures of banks returns and the share of noninterest income.
This risk was not explicitely modeled in previous studies, an important omission from the standpoint of the asset pricing theory. Indeed, considering risk-adjusted measures only is not completely satisfying when returns are not first-degree homogenous in volatility.
Instead, the volatility should appear on the RHS of the returns equations, as it is usually the case in asset pricing.
Running this experiment unveils a maturation process with banks starting to price the new type of risk in when the net interest and noninterest revenues correlation changed sign. DeYoung and Roland conjectured that the surging volatility of banks revenues should eventually give rise to the incorporation of 5 risk premia in various measures of bank accounting returns, however, they did not test this conjecture.
Our contribution here is precisely to fill this gap with the introduction of the returns conditional volatilities directly in banks returns equations.

Our empirical study runs from the first fiscal quarter of to the fourth fiscal quarter of We find that the banks risk-return trade-off presents a structural break, which may be dated around In the second subperiod of our sample, the share of noninterest income no longer impacts negatively the two retained measures of banks returns, as was previously the case.
Relatedly, we find that a risk premium emerges in the second subperiod while in the first subperiodthe volatility variable is not significant in any returns equations.
These results are consistent with a maturation process story. This paper is organized as follows. In section 2, we present the stylized facts associated to the banking deregulation process.
In section 3, we present a conjecture explaining the increased riskiness of the Canadian financial system.
In section 4, we go on with the pricing of risk premia in banks returns.1 Credit Be Dammed: The Impact of Banking Deregulation on Economic Growth Abstract This paper examines channels through which state-level financial.

The impact of restructuring on emissions in any particular state will depend on the regulatory and market context, as well as on how specific changes caused by deregulation interact with environmental policies and with incentives to adopt supply and demand-side technologies as strategies to reduce emissions.

It also analyzes their impact on the financial services industry. Kroszner and Strahan (), bank branching deregulation only results in branching activity in early deregulating states and not late deregulating states. We find that early deregulating states in our sample experience large growth effects from bank branching deregulation while late deregulating states experience no growth effects.
