This paper examines the effects of bank corporate governance on real estate lending and loan losses during the recent financial crisis. The results indicate that banks with stronger corporate governance mechanisms had higher profitability during the period 2006-2009. Our findings on the effects of corporate governance on real estate lending performance are mixed and depend on the definition of the crisis period. Although banks with stronger governance practices had a lower amount of real estate loan losses during 2006-2008, our results also show that these banks experienced significantly larger losses in 2009.
