Abstract

In this paper we explore the determinants of portfolio equity gross inflows (foreign liabilities) to the Chilean economy in dimensions that are novel to the literature. Using a unique dataset proprietary to the Central Bank of Chile that records each transactio n of foreign investors on domestic portfolio equity instruments, we analyze aggregated and disaggregated flows, the latter identifying the type of foreign investor behind the flow. Our findings indicate that inward, and not outward, flows are those that r espond to the traditional push/pull factors. Moreover, some pull factors that appear to be statistically non - significant for aggregate flows, become important to flows from specific investor types, and the economic relevance of these factors also varies am ong investors.
