  • Return Spillover of Asian REITs

    • Authors: Leviana Hestiawan, Ruslan Prijadi
      Abstract: This research examines the relationship and direction of return spillover of Asian REITs, between REITs and local stock markets, and its effect towards REIT returns. The samples are from Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Taiwan. This research uses Diebold and Yilmaz’s technique to measure the relationship and direction of return spillover between asset classes. The method also uses OLS regression to test the effects of return spillover on REIT returns. The results show that connectedness between Asian markets is low. Japan and Singapore are the strongest influencers. Low connectedness was also found between REITs and the local stock market. In general, net return spillover from Asian REIT markets significantly influence REITs’ return. The results imply that the growth of REIT markets depends on the attractiveness of capital markets in a country. Regulators in developing countries need to improve the capital market environment to enable REIT markets to flourish.

  • Impact of Founder on the IPO Flipping Activity during Pre and Post-Global
           Financial Crisis

    • Authors: Hon-Wei Leow, Wee-Yeap Lau
      Abstract: This study examines the impact of the founder on the IPO flipping activity in the Malaysian stockmarket, especially the Main and ACE Market, across the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) periodfrom January 2006 to December 2016. Multiple regression models have been used to evaluate the interaction of the founder and other independent variables. Using three sub-periods, namely pre- GFC, GFC, and Post-GFC, our results show: Firstly, the founder by itself does not have any impact on flipping activity. However, the interaction of founder and oversubscription ratio reduces flipping activity in the pre-crisis period. Secondly, the interaction of founder and firm age is significant during the GFC period. Thirdly, in post-GFC, the interaction between founder-firm age, founder-offer period are essential factors. Overall, it is found that firm age and IPO offer period have an impact on flipping activity in the Main and ACE Market.
