The Footprint of Foreign Listing: Issuers from Emerging Markets

Show Summary Details


Chapter 3 continues the focus on issuers, but this time in an international context. The analysis is based on the most dynamic part of the foreign listing market in 2000s: issuers from Brazil, Russia, India, and China listing their shares in the USA, the UK, and Luxembourg. The results show that these issuers are mostly large firms, coming from relatively high-growth, internationally oriented sectors, and headquartered overwhelmingly in the leading business centres of their home countries. Key intermediaries in the foreign listing process are the global investment banks, linking the locations of the cross-listing firms with the financial centres where the host stock exchanges are located. Competition is fierce, with both the host markets and intermediaries specializing in terms of the size, sector, and geographical origin of the issuers they serve.
