source 23rd Annual European Real Estate Society Conference in Regensburg, Germany
summary The international business literature documents that higher quality corporate governance, at both the national level and the firm level, is associated with a greater likelihood to invest abroad and to take larger stakes when investing abroad. We examine a unique set of international real estate holdings and corporate governance data to evaluate the comparability of real estate investment to foreign direct investment (FDI) more broadly. Our results at both the national and firm level indicate that real estate transactions differ fundamentally from other types of FDI. Specifically, property nation governance, real estate firm headquarter nation governance, and firm level governance are negatively associated with the propensity to invest across borders. Further, firm level corporate governance is negatively related to the stake acquired in foreign property investment. These results are counter to the FDI literature.
