The Relationship between Institutional Investors and Corporate Value


This study is designed to provide insights into the monitoring role of institutional investors by examining whether institutional ownership affects the corporate value. Prior studies examining the relation between the shareholdings by institutional investors and corporate value have produced mixed results. In this study, different hypothesis (Effective Monitoring Hypothesis & Convergence of Interest Hypothesis) in relation to institutional investors, are tested. A multifold linear regression analysis is used to test the relation between corporate value and institutional ownership. The results demonstrate significant evidence of a positive association between institutional ownership and corporate value and approve Effective Monitoring Hypothesis. In addition, this study does not find significant linear relationship between concentrated institutional ownership and corporate value and Convergence of Interest Hypothesis is not approved.
