Abstract

This paper introduces a new dataset of French investments in foreign securities. This is the most detailed data available to date. The data is used to study the composition, valuation, and total return of the French portfolio of non-sovereign foreign securities on the 34 years before World War 1. Additional insights are obtained about the structure of the financial market in France.
