Abstract

This paper investigates the behavior of foreign equity investment in the Korean market over the period 1995 through 2001. The main questions to be examined in the paper are that: (1) foreign equity investment is relatively more reversible than domestic investment in the wake of financial crisis; (2) foreign equity investors tend to increase the volatility of the market more than domestic investors. The results indicate that it is difficult to say that foreign equity investment were more reversible than domestic investment for the duration of financial crisis period. On the other hand, I have found evidence that foreign equity investors tend to cause higher volatility in the market than domestic investors.
