We propose an international asset pricing model in a two-country framework where trading in the foreign market encounters barriers to portfolio flows and short-sale constraints. Under ownership restrictions, free assets are priced with a global risk premium whereas the restricted assets command a global risk premium, a conditional risk premium and a conditional discount. With binding ownership and short-sale constraints, some foreign assets become non-tradable, however, pricing rules are not altered. We estimate our model using maximum likelihood approach for 18 major emerging markets over the period 1989-2007 and find strong support for our model.
