Abstract:     
We review the literature on the relationship between firm geographic location and corporate finance with an emphasis on corporate governance. We discuss the importance of geographic location within the context of four theoretical frameworks – agency theory of the firm, asymmetric information, market segmentation, and behavioral finance, and highlight some directions for future research.
