This study examines the effects of the interactions among IFRS adoption, analyst coverage, and cross-listings in the U.S. on the voluntary disclosure of Brazilian public companies. We document a significant positive shift on voluntary disclosure incentives among cross-listed firms from the IFRS pre-adoption period to the post-adoption period. We also find that analyst coverage has a positive association with voluntary disclosure over the IFRS adoption process; however, the interaction between IFRS adoption and analysts affects positively only environmental and social disclosure. Our results have some implications to regulators, investors, and practitioners.
