Financial Contagion in a Core-Periphery Network
This paper studies financial contagion in a core-periphery interbank network where core banks are large in balance sheet size while periphery banks are smaller and link only with the core banks. Core banks are all bilaterally linked and intermediate liquidity for periphery banks. We show that the failure of core banks does not necessarily imply the contagious failure of periphery banks; the core-periphery network structure exhibits a ‘robust-yet-fragile’ tendency with increased size of core banks; and the resilience of the network depends on the number of core banks, periphery banks and the level of interbank liquidity intermediated between the core banks.
