Simone Traini

"I examine the effect of institutional ownership on corporate taxation and foreign earnings disclosure exploiting the exogenous variation of instrumental variables in a quasi-experimental setting; such as changes in financial regulation and inclusion in stock market indexes. I lead my analyses at both micro (firm) and aggregate (country) level to increase understanding of the role played by institutional investors around the world."
