This paper tests for improvements in the investment environment after the Co-Trading initiative between Australia and Singapore. Co-Trading officially commenced on 20th December 2001 with 101 stocks and was extended to a further 99 stocks on 30th March 2003. The study defines investment environment in two dimensions: firm visibility which measures the quantity of information for a firm and the quality of information available. To test for gains in firm visibility, this study adopts two proxies, namely the frequency of news citation and the number of analysts following a firm. To test for improvements in the quality of firm information, this study adopts three proxies, namely the volatility of returns, coefficient of earnings forecasts and differences between the highest and lowest earnings forecasts.
