Resumen:
This paper empirically explores the effect of bank lending relationships in the interbank market. We use data from the e-MID market that represents the only transparent electronic platform in Europe and USA, unaffected by search costs and other fictions. We show that stable relationships exist and that they played a significant role during the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Trading with  preferred counterparts is associated with more favorable rates for both lenders and borrowers, and carries  larger trading volumes.  The results point to a peer monitoring role of  relationship lending, which contributes,  at a time of financial distress,  to a smooth  liquidity redistribution among banks. Relationship lending thus plays an important positive role for financial stability.
