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