“Integration between the London and New York Stock Exchanges, 1825-1925.” Economic History Review

Campbell, Gareth and Meeghan Rogers

Abstract: In this article the integration between the London and New York Stock Exchanges is analyzed during the era when they were still developing as asset markets. The domestic securities on both exchanges showed little sustained integration, even when controlling for the different characteristics of stocks, which implies that the pricing of securities in the US and UK was still being driven by local factors. These results place a limit on the view that the pre-First World War period was the first era of globalization in terms of capital markets. However, there was considerable integration between New York and those listings on London that operated internationally. This suggests that the listing of foreign securities may be one of the primary mechanisms driving asset market integration.

“Capital Structure Volatility in Europe” International Review of Financial Analysis

Meeghan Rogers

Abstract: Contrary to the predictions of the trade-off theory, we find that many companies in Europe had substantial variation in their capital structures between 2006 and 2016. We show that this pattern occurred across countries. Companies with the most volatile debt ratios tended to be smaller, and were less profitable. Their high debt volatility was partly due to high volatility in operating and investing activities, and partly due to a reduced propensity to let cash balances and equity payouts absorb the fluctuations.

“Disappearing Regional Stock Markets: The UK Experience, 1869-1929” Under review at the Journal of Economic History.

Meeghan Rogers

Abstract: In recent decades stock markets from around the world have been merging to create major multinational exchanges. Is it inevitable that the remaining national exchanges will be absorbed into broader platforms? We argue that the historical experience of UK provincial markets shows that multiple exchanges can successfully coexist, but only when they are differentiated. When regional markets specialized in local stocks and specific industries they thrived. However, when these types of securities decreased, the uniqueness of the provincial markets disappeared. The provincial markets became highly correlated with London, leading eventually to the creation a single national exchange.
