Abstract

This paper investigates whether the differences in bank regulatory standards matter for the cross-border supply of …financial services. A gravity model of the bilateral exports of financial services is implemented to assess the impact of various factors that measure cross-country differences in the bank regulatory standards. The results show that cross-country heterogeneity in private monitoring impedes the export of financial services. However, this effect remains limited compared to the effect of direct trade barriers.

Keywords: …financial services, banking regulation
