会议主题：Share Pledging in China: Funding Listed Firms or Funding Entrepreneurship?
内容提要： This paper studies the connection between share pledging and entrepreneurial activities in China, challenging the common wisdom that share pledging funds are circled back to the listed firms. Share pledging funds are at the discretion of the shareholders who pledge their publicly-traded shares, and survey evidence shows that a larger fraction of the largest shareholders (67.3%) used the pledging funds outside the listed firms. By linking the firm registration data with the share pledging data, we show a positive relation between shareholders’ pledging transactions and entrepreneurial activities. Utilizing the launch of the exchange market in 2013 as a quasi-natural experiment that favors share pledging by natural person shareholders against that by legal entity shareholders, our difference-in-differences (DID) analysis shows natural person shareholders increased their entrepreneurial activities significantly in response to the policy shock, relative to legal entity shareholders. Besides various robustness checks, we also show that shareholders with better access to share pledging invest more heavily in industries with above-median growth potential.
