Despite the English common-law origin and a British-style judicial system, Indian firms face weak investor protection in practice and poor institutions characterized by corruption and inefficiency. Alternative finance, including financing from all nonbank, nonmarket sources, and generally backed by nonlegal mechanisms, constitutes the most important form of . external finance. Bank loans provide the second most important external financing source. Firms with access to bank or market finance are . not associated with higher growth rates. Our results indicate that bank and market finance is not superior to alternative finance in fast-growing economies such as India. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Financial Intermediation||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/44449||ISSN:||10429573||DOI:||10.1016/j.jfi.2012.01.003|
