Cross-Border Investment in Small International Financial Centers

Philip Lane and Gian Maria Milesi-Ferretti ()

No 7694, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: We document and assess the role of small financial centers in the international financial system using a newly-assembled dataset. We present estimates of the foreign asset and liability positions for a number of the most important small financial centers, and place these into context by calculating the importance of these locations in the global aggregate of cross-border investment positions. We also report data on bilateral cross-border investment patterns, highlighting which countries engage in financial trade with small financial centers.
