Commodities as Collateral

This paper proposes and tests a theory of using commodities as collateral for financing. Under capital control and collateral constraint, financial investors import commodities and pledge them as collateral to earn a risk premium. The collateral demand for com- modities increases commodity prices globally; it also increases commodity futures risk premium in the importing country but reduces that in the exporting country. Evidence from eight commodities in China and developed markets supports the theoretical pre-dictions, and the effects are economically large. Our theory and evidence complement
the theory of storage and provide new insights on the financialization of commodity markets.
