Investor´s Distrust and the Marketing of New Financial Assets
AbstractIn this paper I present a model where a financial intermediary decides to open new security markets and offer them to boundedly rational investors. I show first that, if consumers have downward biased priors about payoffs, then no trade in the new securities may be verified. It is shown that no endogenous variable serves as a credible signal. Hence, only exogenous signals allows inference by investors. Incentives to disclosure depend upon its cost. I analyze this last issue with two-part tariff schemes.
