This paper examines the effect of unidirectional intermarket investment barriers on asset prices in the Singapore stock market. The results show that identical stocks trade at a significant price difference when legal restrictions on foreign holdings of indigenous equity are binding. Foreign investors are willing to offer a premium, and local investors demand a discount, for otherwise identical stocks. The results from a pooled regression show that the foreign ownership restrictions, relative liquidity, and the correlation between Singapore and world market portfolios explain significantly the cross-sectional variation in the daily price premiums.
