Shadow Banking y Liquidez en Colombia


  • Pamela Cardozo


  • Jorge Cely


  • Andrés Murcia



En este estudio calculamos un indicador de la actividad de shadow banking en Colombia para el período comprendido entre enero de 2011 y marzo de 2013. Dicho indicador sugiere que esta actividad ha venido incrementándose y representa cerca del 9,9% del PIB de 2012. Adicionalmente, evaluamos el nivel de prociclicidad que puede tener la decisión de apalancamiento de un grupo de intermediarios financieros especialmente asociados a este tipo de actividad, encontrando que dicha prociclicidad está asociada a un mayor uso de operaciones repo y de simultáneas por parte de los intermediarios financieros. Finalmente, a través de la adaptación de un modelo teórico de liquidez y apalancamiento (Tirole, 2011) planteamos bajo qué condiciones dichas decisiones de apalancamiento se tornan procíciclicas.
