This study computes banking risk indexes for European developing countries and analyses the impact of identified risk factors on economic growth across regions and cities. We examine the short-run and long-run behaviours of the series. The results reveal that real gross domestic product (RGDP) per capita co-moves with banking risk. We find that about 17% of focal regions suffer significantly from banking risk shocks. The effect ranges from 0.1% to 0.7%, with a lower magnitude for cities. Banking risk has the most detrimental effects in Russia. Short- and long-run decrements in RGDP range between 0.2% and 0.3% across the panel.
