Abstract

Using Malaysian data, this paper investigates the association between corporate governance quality and ownership concentration type. The results indicate that corporate governance quality is lower for companies with substantial ownership by the Chief Executive Officer's family and higher for companies with substantial ownership by Government-related institutional investors.
