Foreign shareholding: a decomposition analysis

Ajay Shah () and Ila Patnaik ()

Applied Financial Economics, 2011, vol. 21, issue 10, 743-746

Abstract: Stulz (2005) has emphasized that for home bias to decline, insiders have to reduce ownership so as to make purchase of shares by foreigners possible. We offer a decomposition in the ownership of shares by foreigners into three parts: the change in insider shareholding, the change in market capitalization and the change in the fraction of outside shareholding that is held by foreigners. As an example, this decomposition is applied to help understand the sharp change in foreign ownership of Indian firms after 2001.
