What Can International Finance Add to International Strategy?

Lars Oxelheim (), Trond Randoy () and Arthur Stonehill

Abstract: This chapter focuses on the role of corporate financial strategies to improve firmsí market valuations, and thus lower their cost of capital. The identification of successful strategies is accomplished within an overall strategic framework and related to how the firm perceives the degree of international financial integration. Five strategies for how to break out of a segmented, thin domestic capital market are highlighted together with historical success cases. The chapter illustrates the linkages between business strategy, firm motivation, and various financial strategies.
