Abstract
We study the implications of information technology (IT) in banking for financial stability, using data on US banks’ IT equipment and the tech-background of their executives. We find that one standard deviation higher pre-crisis IT adoption led to 10% fewer non-performing loans during the global financial crisis. We present several pieces of evidence that indicate a direct role of IT adoption in strengthening bank resilience; these include instrumental variable estimates exploiting the historical location of technical schools. Loan-level analysis reveals that high-IT adoption banks originated mortgages with better performance and did not offload low-quality loans.
