Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to analyze recent findings in the research on bankers’ lending decision making, to merge relevant findings in psychology and economics and create a comprehensive review of the literature. Design/methodology/approach – The authors used a systematic article search for empirical studies when conducting the research. Findings – The findings are analyzed on the basis of human decision-making research. The results of the review are three conclusions about loan officers’ decision making: their dependency on bank characteristics, their decision-making biases, and their deliberate and intuitive reasoning approaches. Originality/value – The paper’s findings are important, both as a summary of the literature on lending decision making and also as a foundation for future research. Keywords Banks, Loans, Decision making, Reasoning, Small to medium-sized enterprises, Review, Relationship lending, Transactional lending Paper type Literature review
