Debt Contracts with Financial Intermediation with Costly Screening
AbstractThe authors develop a credit market model with adverse selection where risk-neutral borrowers self select because lenders make use of a costly screening technology. Equilibrium contracts are debt contracts, and this is robust to randomization, in contrast to results for the costly state verification model. This framework permits optimal financial intermediary structures, in that there is delegated screening in equilibrium if many borrowers are required to fund individual investment projects.
