Equity market integration in the Asia Pacific region: Evidence from discount factors

Edda Claus () and Brian Lucey ()

Research in International Business and Finance, 2012, vol. 26, issue 2, 137-163

Abstract: The paper investigates stock market integration among 10 economies in the Asia Pacific region over the period April to May 2006 based on a recently developed technique that relies on estimating expected discount rates; see Flood and Rose (2005a,b). The results show a limited but varying degree of stock market integration among the 10 economies. Membership in a formal economic organization does not seem to affect the degree of integration.
