The Informational Advantage of Foreign Investors: An Empirical Study of the Swedish Bond Market

Patrik Säfvenblad ()

Abstract: This paper uses daily capital flows to the Swedish bond market to analyse the relative information endowment of domestic and foreign investors. Using the standard framework of a noisy rational expectations equilibrium it is shown that foreign investors are, on average, better informed than domestic investors. The better information of foreign investors is related to pan-European factors, including ITL bond yields, future order flow, as well as pure Swedish factors.
