Abstract

This study analyzes the dynamics of attracting foreign institutional investment, using the mediated moderation approach to investigate whether corporate transparency can mediate the interactive effects of firm performance and family or policy on foreign institutional investment. This study has several findings. First, corporate transparency does not mediate the relationship between firm performance and foreign institutional investment. Second, firm performance can interact with the policy effect to affect foreign institutional investment. Third, based on the second finding, a further test found that the mediating process through corporate transparency does not account for the moderation effect of policy on the relationship between firm performance and foreign institutional investment. The findings can provide academics, practitioners, and policy makers with evidence regarding the role of firm performance and corporate transparency, as well as the effects of family and policy in encouraging foreign institutional investment.
