Strategic Financial Innovation in Segmented Markets
AbstractWe study an equilibrium model with restricted investor participation in which strategic arbitrageurs reap profits by exploiting mispricings across different trading locations.� We edogonize the asset structure as the outcome of the security design game played by the�arbitrageurs.� The equilibrium asset structure depends realistically upon consideration such as depth, liquidity and gains from trade.� It is not socially optimal in general; the degree of inefficiency depends upon the heterogeneity of investors. Finally we use this framework to formally analyse Shiller's conjecture of the optimality 'macro markets'.��
