This paper, based on the international capital asset pricing model estimated using the Kalman filter (KF) technique, examines the relationship between market integration and the systematic risk of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) emerging stock markets with respect to the world portfolio. We find strong evidence that local and regional integrations have effects on systematic risk and hence on returns, and certain evidence of the direct effects of market integrations on returns. Our results documented for individual markets show a heterogeneous pattern across the APEC region, implying that a one-rule-fits-all regulation policy would hurt some countries while assisting others.
