A Meta-Analytic Vision of the Effect of Ownership Structure on Firm Performance

15 Pages Posted: 1 Oct 2007


There is a considerable volume of research on the effects of ownership structure on firm performance. However, the empirical results in this field are often conflicting and inconsistent. A meta-analysis based on 33 studies allows an integration of the results on the association between insider ownership, ownership concentration and firm performance. The findings show that governance system, measurement of performance, and control for endogeneity moderate the effect of ownership on firm performance.
