Abstract: Banks are seen as having informational advantages in the market for risky securities. The competitive implications of these advantages are explored in a model of asset prices. The impact of capital adequacy requirements on shareholders and borrowers is explored. The paper concludes with a brief extension to the analysis of required liquidity ratios and of competition between banks which are subject to different regulatory regimes.
