Information asymmetries arise if potential borrowers cannot effectively signal their risk-preferences. Under these circumstances, creditors cannot assess the default risk of their loans and do not know whether borrowers will react to higher interest rates by undertaking riskier investments. Incentive asymmetries are caused by limited liability.
