An underinvestment problem refers to a situation in which a company, or its stockholders, decides not to invest in low-risk investments that would deliver safe cash flow for the advantage of shareholders of the company's debt. The company, instead, chooses to invest in high-risk assets that leave the bondholder exposed to high risk without a promise of a higher return.
