Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

There is a great debate on the significance of the stable economic and well structure legal system on the commercialization, innovation and employment in modern economies. Private equity activities play a significant role in these three aspects. The purpose of this work is to investigate the macroeconomic and environmental determinants of private equity investment in nine major Asian countries. The estimations are based on a data set running from 2004 to 2013. Applying robust
estimation techniques Extreme Bounds Analysis, this work identifies growth in domestic product growth, corporation tax rate, disclosure index and investors’ protection index as 'robust' set of determinants of private equity. Also, inflation, stock market value, property right index, legal costs, lending rate and time in days to start business as likely robust. The result suggests the need to enhance business confidence in the country not only through robust monetary and fiscal policy but also legal system.
