Banks serve as important liquidity providers to the corporate sector. However, a bank’s ability to provide liquidity is limited if many of its borrowers demand liquidity at the same time (i.e., correlated liquidity demands). We predict and find that a bank is more likely to include covenants that require a borrower to hold minimum liquidity (minimum liquidity covenants) in loan contracts when the borrower has higher correlated liquidity demands with the bank’s loan portfolio. We further find that the effect of borrower-lender portfolio liquidity demand correlation on the use of minimum liquidity covenants is stronger when banks are more affected by the Liquidity Coverage Ratio regulations, when borrowers experience negative liquidity shocks, and when borrowers face greater financial constraints. Lastly, we find that borrowers have lower liquidity risks after obtaining loans with minimum liquidity covenants. Overall, our findings suggest that banks actively monitor their borrowers’ liquidity to ensure their role as liquidity providers.
