Abstract

Using a rich and detailed data set, including both market data and firm attributes, this paper investigates the relationship between foreign ownership and dividend policy in Vietnam stock markets. In other words, we attempt to shed light on the following questions: (i) Are foreign investors more likely to choose firms that pay high dividends? and (ii) Do foreign investors cause firms to increase dividends when they have substantial shareholdings?
