Abstract

We study the effect of a credit supply shock on the performance of Colombian firms, induced by an unexpected increase in the liquidity of banks. The increased liquidity was the result of sudden sell-off of Colombian government bonds by banks in response to an unexpected increase in their demand. The shift in demand for these government bonds followed the unexpected increase of its share in the composition of a prominent JP Morgan index. We exploit the variation in liquidity across Banks and their preexisting relationships with firms at the time of the shock to extract from the data the variation in loans that was driven by the exogenous shock. We then connect this variation in loans to the performance of firms. We find that the positive credit shock led to increased sales by firms, based mainly on increases of capital investment. **** RESUMEN: En este documento estudiamos el efecto de un choque a la oferta de crédito en el desempeño de las firmas colombianas, como consecuencia de un incremento inesperado en la liquidez de los bancos. El aumento en la liquidez fue resultado de un aumento súbito en las ventas por parte de los bancos de bonos gubernamentales en respuesta a un incremento inesperado en su demanda. El cambio en la demanda por estos activos fue resultado de un incremento en la participación de estos activos en dos índices de mercados emergentes de J.P.Morgan. Explotamos la heterogeneidad en la tenencia de bonos entre bancos y las relaciones pre-existentes con las firmas en el momento del choque para extraer de los datos la variación en los créditos inducida por el choque exógeno. Luego conectamos esta variación de los créditos con el desempeño de las firmas. Encontramos que el aumento inesperado de la liquidez de los bancos condujo a un aumento en las ventas de las firmas, con base principalmente en aumentos en la inversión en capital fijo.
