The methodology suggested in his research has been widely implemented by asset owners and investment managers. Another area of Prof. Yoon's focus is on the emerging markets. In his dissertation, for example, he examined how Chinese firms met foreign institutional investors privately through the host of reputable foreign brokers to overcome the weak institutional environment.
