Determinants of Liquidity (Re-)Allocation and the Decision to Cross-List or Cross-Delist

Item Type Journal paper

This paper examines the factors influencing the liquidity allocation between local and foreign dual listings. Based on a comprehensive data set covering the period between 2001 and 2011, empirical results suggest that the fraction of trading in the foreign listing decreases with a higher degree of stock market Integration measured as the stock price correlation with the world market. Furthermore, the
analysis of individual cross-listings reveals that both an improvement of a country’s state of economic development and a better regulatory Environment significantly affect the allocation of trading. While an improvement in economic development increases both, local and foreign liquidity, a strengthening of regulatory standards leads to a decrease in trading volumes at foreign exchanges. Finally, the liquidity share in the foreign listing is found to decrease over time, a trend which turns out to be driven by developing rather than by developed markets.
