Abstract: We analyze how changes in market expectations about the Federal Reserve�s future monetary policy stance affect an emerging country�s share in total portfolio flows to emerging markets. We estimate a seemingly unrelated regression model for a panel of 19 emerging countries, using monthly data from January 2010 to October 2017. Our findings suggest that the effect of Fed�s policy expectations on the country share is asymmetric. The expectations of Fed�s monetary policy is found to reduce an emerging country�s share in total emerging market portfolio flows when expectations imply a policy tightening, while easing expectations do not have a significant effect on the share. A country with stronger financial conditions and safer business environment for international investors tend to downsize the negative effect of Fed�s policy tightening on its share in total portfolio flows, with respect to its counterparts.
