Abstract

This article studies the potential links between the value of collateral and the investment decisions made by firms. We show that the use of collateral is an endogenous response to the presence of asymmetric information in financial markets. We then show that permanent shocks to the value of collateral can cause firms to temporarily postpone their investments. This creates a link between imperfections in financial markets and investment decisions made by firms. Cet article étudie les liens potentiels qui peuvent exister entre la disponibilité du collatéral pour les firmes et leurs décisions d’investissement. Nous identifions d’abord sous quelles conditions le collatéral apparaît de façon optimale dans les contrats financiers. Puis, sous ces conditions, nous considérons comment le collatéral, lorsque soumis à des chocs exogènes, peut être la source du report des investissements à une période ultérieure. En particulier, nous démontrons que des chocs permanents au collatéral peuvent causer des changements temporaires dans les décisions d’investissement. Un lien est ainsi créé entre le fonctionnement des marchés financiers et les décisions d’investissement des entreprises.
