International Diversification and Dividend Taxes

Abstract


International diversification can reduce the risk of investment portfolios, but the optimal allocations are affected by taxes. This paper examines taxation of dividends received from equity securities. Two important studies are reviewed, and five other studies are outlined. Ongoing research with simpler models will give useful guidance to individual investors.
