主 题/Title:Earnings Smoothing in Banking Industry through Advisory Fee Income - Do Depositors Matter?

内容简介/ Abstract

  Existing literature focuses on loan loss provision as a tool for banks to smooth earnings. The novelty and contribution of our study is the proposition that advisory fee income, a key banking revenue item that involves significant accounting discretions, is also an important earnings smoothing tool but has been overlooked. We get strong, supporting evidence from U.S. banking data from 2001 to 2017. We also find that banks smooth earnings more aggressively (i) under negative earnings, (ii) at investment grade credit ratings, (iii) with ratings at plus or minus notches, and (iv) without recent rating changes. We further examine the joint impact of earnings and credit ratings on earnings smoothing behaviour and find that investment-grade (speculative-grade) banks with negative earnings engage most (least) aggressively in earnings smoothing whereas banks with positive earnings lie in between. Our findings hence bear important policy implications.
