Securitization And Real Investment In Incomplete Markets

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper studies the impact of financial innovations on real investment decisions within the frame-work of an incomplete market economy comprised of firms, investors, and an intermediary. The firms face unique investment opportunities that arise in their business operations and can be undertaken at given reservation prices. The cash flows thus generated are not spanned by the securities traded in the financial market, and cannot be valued uniquely. The intermediary purchases claims against these cash flows, pools them together, and sells tranches of primary or secondary securities to the investors.
