Abstract

Since 2014 the Colombian local public bond market experienced a substantial increase in the participation of foreign investors due to a reduction of the tax rates on foreign portfolio investment returns and the increase in the weight of Colombia in the JP Morgan GBI-GD. Some evidence is presented suggesting that the resulting inflows reduced bond and loan interest rates and raised loan supply. There is also evidence of an increased sensitivity of local public bond yields to CDS and EMBI, although the influence of external financial conditions on domestic lending rates has remained subdued. Finally, no evidence is found of a shift in the transmisión of domestic monetary policy shocks to public bond and lending interest rates after the increase in foreign participation in the local bond market. **** RESUMEN: Desde 2014 el mercado de deuda pública colombiana experimentó un incremento sustancial en la participación de inversionistas extranjeros como resultado de la reducción de las tasas impositivas aplicables a las inversiones de portafolio y al incremento de la ponderación de Colombia en el índice GBI-GD de JP Morgan. En este artículo se presenta evidencia que sugiere que los flujos de inversión de portafolio redujeron las tasas de interés de los bonos y las tasas de interés activas, aumentando la oferta de crédito. También se presentan algunos resultados que sugieren un incremento en la sensibilidad de las tasas de interés de la deuda pública local a los CDS y al EMBI, aunque la influencia de factores externos hacia las tasas de interés activas locales se ha mantenido baja. Finalmente, no se encuentra evidencia que el incremento de la participación de los inversionistas extranjeros en el mercado de deuda pública local haya generado cambios en la transmisión de la política monetaria hacia las tasas de interés.
