There are two datasets here related to the syndication market (1) bank level spreads, bank level characteristics (2) deal level spreads and characteristics. The key variable is "connections" - which captures the number of unique connections (per year) in the syndication network. In our research, we test for the impact of connections against spreads, both at the lender-bank level, as well as the deal level.
