Abstract:     
Motivated by behavioural asset pricing theory, we extend Vasicek (1977, 2002) factor pricing models to a statistical risk accounting model to characterize the compensating risk premium required to sustain minority banks’ (MBs) altruistic motive to provide credit in underserved communities. Our model predicts that increased bank capitalization, and brokered deposit (BD) exceptions, compensate risk when the incremental internal rate of return they induce is negatively correlated with the internal rate of return on extant MB loan portfolios. Thus implying, paradoxically, that loan portfolios levered by increased capital, and brokered deposits, militate against altruistic motives. This suggests that for a given amount of altruism, minority banks are better served by tactical portfolio allocation in an expanded investment opportunity set. Using Federal Reserve Statistical Release (12/2011) on select FFIEC Form 031 (“Call Report”) data, we fit a risk-return function for minority banks and estimate the compensating risk premium for return on assets.
