AbstractThe present paper extends the literature on the functions of foreign subsidiaries in the strategies of multinational companies in two ways: (a) by using a series of activities to induce subsidiary roles and (b) by investigating the firm-specific and location-specific determinants of subsidiary roles. Cluster analysis of responses of multinational subsidiary managers in the Asia-Pacific support a four-fold subsidiary typology. Categorical modeling on the resulting subsidiary types showed that several firm-specific and location-specific variables such as firm size, nationality, host market size and the level of host market openness have an impact on subsidiary mandate.
