Abstract
This dissertation consists of three distinct but related essays in financial contracts and financial intermediations. The first essay examines how bank regulations, market structure, institutional qualities, and their relative differences between borrowing and lending countries impact the cost of bank-to-bank loans. The second essay assesses the important role of information intermediaries, specifically financial analysts, in the bank loan market. The third essay develops a new performance evaluation matrix in the syndicated loan market and examines the determinants of banks' lending performance.
