This paper examines how the sensitivity of cross-border syndicated loan supply varies with the internationalization of borrower country banking sectors, banks and loan syndicates. A higher foreign bank presence in borrower countries mitigates the transmission of monetary policy. Prior lending experience of international banks in borrower countries also attenuates monetary transmission. In contrast, to the extent they become more international, the credit supply of banks and loan syndicates becomes more sensitive to lender-country monetary policy.
