Título: “Does Board diversity affect institutional investor preferences? Evidence from Latin America”

Expone: Carlos Pombo, profesor Asistente de Finanzas, Universidad de los Andes, Colombia.

This paper enquires whether institutional investors have specific preferences on the composition of the board of directors in Latin American firms they hold shares in. The result show that preferences vary significantly in terms of the type of institutional investor. The econometric results suggest grey institutional investors (pension funds and insurance companies) prefer experience and education, while dislike CEO entrenchment. Independent institutional investors value more directors’ professional experience i.e., former CEOs and founders of any firm. Grey investors are more concern on firm corporate governance mechanisms consistent with the agency view, while independent investors are focused in business opportunities in accordance with the resource-based-view of board of directors.

Título: “Capital Controls and Firm Performance: The E ffects of the Chilean Encaje”

Expone: Eugenia Andreasen, profesora Asociada del departamento de Economía de la Universidad de Santiago de Chile.

This paper studies the effects of the capital controls imposed by Chile between 1991 and 1998, i.e. the Chilean encaje, on firms' production, investment and exporting decisions. We use a general equilibrium model with heterogeneous firms and financial constraints to illustrate the mechanism by which capital controls on inflows affect firm-level dynamics and international trade. We find that capital controls on inflows depress the local economy due to the credit restriction, reducing aggregate production, investment and domestic sales. This reduced level of domestic activity increases the firm's incentives to export, increasing both the level of exports and the share of exporters. Most of these effects are exacerbated for firms in more capital-intensive sectors. Using data from the Chilean Encuesta Nacional Industrial Anual (ENIA) we empirically corroborate the conclusions and insights of the theoretical model.

Título: “Managers’ cultural background and disclosure attributes”

Expone: Patricia Naranjo, profesora Asistente de Contabilidad en Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University.

We examine how a manager’s ethnic cultural background affects their communication with investors. Using a sample of earnings conference call transcripts with 24,901 executives from 42 countries, we find that managers from ethnic groups that have a more individualistic culture use a more optimistic tone and exhibit greater self-reference in their disclosure narratives. Managers’ ethnic culture has a lasting effect on their narratives, an effect that persists even for executives whose work experience later exposes them to different ethnic cultures. The effect of ethnic heritage is observed in dialogues that reflect real time interactions (i.e., Q&As) and less pronounced in the scripted, less spontaneous portion of the calls (i.e., management discussion). The capital market responds positively to an optimistic tone, but only analysts who share managers’ ethnic background adjust their earnings forecasts for the cultural component of managerial tone. The findings suggest that managers’ ethnic backgrounds have a significant effect on how they communicate with the capital market and how the market responds to the disclosure event.
