dc.description.abstractThe choice between foreign direct investment (FDI) and exports has been a recurrenttheme in the literature on international trade, yet few studies have analysed this choiceat the level of the individual firm. This paper uses a new dataset to study the FDI-versus-exports decision for banks. We use data on the foreign direct investment stocksand the cross-border provision of financial services of German banks for the period1997-2000 to describe the regional pattern of banks' international activities. We findthat country- and bank-specific variables capturing size have a major impact on banks'foreign activities. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that the realisation ofeconomies of scale and the provision of trade-related finance shape globalisationpatterns. Greater cultural and geographical distance, by contrast, potentially limit theinternational expansion of banks. Our results also suggest that FDI and cross-borderservices are complements rather than substitutes.en_US
