Latin American Banking Database

The Latin American Banking Database is a data project that is currently under development. This dataset consists of bank-level data on several Latin American countries. It comprises a large set of variables describing banks’ balance sheets and income statements, as well as data regarding interest rates charged by banks in different market segments. The Latin American Banking Database is built up using regulatory data reported by financial institutions to central banks and regulatory agencies in Latin America.
This dataset includes information on all officially listed banks within a country. The data are on a monthly basis for the period from 2000 to 2014, covering the events related to the World Financial Crisis and the Sovereign Debt Crisis in the Eurozone. This data project is intended to study issues like the transmission of financial shocks to Latin America, the effect of policy and regulatory interventions during the crisis and the behavior of foreign banks in developing countries.
The data of the Latin American Banking Database will be available for researchers at the Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH). For further details, please contact Matias Ossandon Busch (Matias.OssandonBusch {at} iwh-halle.de).
