Foreign Shareholding: A Decomposition Analysis

Ajay Shah and Ila Patnaik ()

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: A decomposition in the ownership of shares by foreigners is offered into three parts: the change in insider shareholding, the change in market capitalisation 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 for- eign ownership of Indian firms after 2001. [Working Paper No. 2010-74].
