Abstract

The thesis consists of three chapters that study the behavior of foreign banks in Brazil. The first chapter explores the Brazilian macro-prudential measures of the end of 2010 in a quasi-natural experiment to unfold the lending behavior of foreign banks. The second chapter evaluates the extent to which the international financial crisis that started in August 2007 induced more affected banks to act in a more pessimistic way on the creditworthiness of their commercial borrowers. The third chapter analyses how the strengthening of creditor rights affected corporate debt structure, collateral liquidity and collateralization rate, following the 2005 bankruptcy law in Brazil.
