Title: How does the ownership structure affect the firm’s performance in a Swedish context?

Background: Ownership structure has been a hot topic ever since the first firms were founded and has since been affected by law, globalization and internationalization. Sweden has previously been characterized by a high ownership concentration as a result from ‘The Swedish Model’ but today there are international pressures that instead propagate a spread type of ownership. The views differ if Sweden is to continue advocating the concentrated ownership structure or shifting towards the Anglo-American corporate governance model.

Purpose: To explain if and how ownership structure affects the performance of Swedish listed firms.

Method: The study has a deductive research approach and the underlying theory is based on agency theory. The quantitative research method relies on ownership, board and financial data from 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Conclusion: There is no significant relationship between ownership concentration and the firm’s performance, but between ownership structure there is significant evidence that foreign and institutional ownership affects the company's performance. Thus, it is possible that Sweden moves towards an Anglo-American type of corporate governance.

Titel: Hur påverkar ägarstrukturen bolagets prestation i en svensk kontext?

Bakgrund: Temat ägarstruktur har debatterats sedan bolagens uppkomst och har sedan dess påverkats av lagstiftning, globalisering och en ökad internationalisering. Sverige har tidigare kännetecknats av en hög ägarkoncentration till följd av den svenska modellen men idag finns det internationella påtryckningar som istället förespråkar ett spritt ägande. Åsikterna går isär om Sverige ska fortsätta förespråka den koncentrerade ägarstrukturen eller övergå mot den angloamerikanska bolagsstyrningsmodellen.

Syfte: Att förklara om och i så fall hur ägarstrukturen påverkar svenska börsnoterade bolags prestation.  

Metod: Studien har en deduktiv forskningsansats där den teoretiska grunden utgörs av agentteori. Den kvantitativa forskningsmetoden bygger på ägar-, styrelse- och finansiell data från åren 2011, 2012 och 2013.

Slutsats: Det råder inget signifikant samband mellan ägarkoncentration och bolagets prestation men mellan ägarstruktur finns det signifikanta belägg för att utländskt och institutionellt ägande har en negativ påverkan på bolagets prestation. Därmed är det möjligt att Sverige rör sig mot en angloamerikansk typ av bolagsstyrning.
