This paper examines to what extent culture affects information asymmetry in the financial markets. To concentrate on cultural proximity rather than geographic proximity, we extract a sample of firms publicly traded in the U.S. but headquartered in regions sharing Chinese culture ("Chinese firms"), and manually identify a group of U.S. analysts of Chinese ethnic origin ("Chinese analysts We find that"). Chinese analysts issue more accurate forecasts about earnings of Chinese firms than non-Chinese analysts. The rise in forecast precision is more pronounced among first-generation Chinese immigrants. Further evidence suggests that culture proximity can go beyond language commonality and analysts pre-existing channels for informatio " N, and that the effect of culture cannot easily be transmitted. market reaction is stronger when Chinese analysts issue of forecast revisions or, about Chinese. Our results indicate that cultural proximity mitigates information asymmetry that them at foreign firms, especially those from emerging markets, and shed light on the culture as an important component of human capital.
