This chapter investigates the emergence of loan syndications during 1939-41, and their relationship to the post-war main bank system. Loan syndication during the early war-time period emerged as a response by banks to the need for risk diversification during the reorganization of industrial structure. The post-war main bank system evolved in response to the credit crunch caused by a sudden termination of directed credits.
