Legal bonding, investor recognition, and cross-listing premia in emerging markets

  • Thomas O'Connor

Using the IFC investable measure to designate firms as either investable or non-investable prior to cross-listing, this paper shows Level 2/3 cross-listing firms that were previously non-investable enjoy the largest 'cross-listing premia'. Since previously non-investable firms are likely to experience the largest increase in their shareholder base post-listing, the results are consistent with the notion that enhanced 'recognition' explains cross-listing premia. For these firms, a combination of bonding and greater recognition serves to deliver large cross-listing premia. For previously investable firms, bonding alone is sufficient to deliver cross-listing premia.
