The Informational Advantage of Foreign Investors: An Empirical Study of the Swedish Bond Market
AbstractThis paper uses daily capital flows to the Swedish bond market to analyse the relative information endowment of domestic and foreign investors. Using the standard framework of a noisy rational expectations equilibrium it is shown that foreign investors are, on average, better informed than domestic investors. The better information of foreign investors is related to pan-European factors, including ITL bond yields, future order flow, as well as pure Swedish factors.
