This paper investigates the evolution of ownership structure of the Italian listed companies before and after the recent Corporate Governance Law Reform («Riforma Draghi»). While, recently the high separation between ownership and control has dramatically narrowed, this result seems not to be driven by a real spread tendency to reduce the risk of expropriation. Pulling together all findings we suggest that the typical equity structure of Italian firms continuously persists to be the only possible answer to the general market forces.

Abstract

This paper investigates the evolution of ownership structure of the Italian listed companies before and after the recent Corporate Governance Law Reform («Riforma Draghi»). While, recently the high separation between ownership and control has dramatically narrowed, this result seems not to be driven by a real spread tendency to reduce the risk of expropriation. Pulling together all findings we suggest that the typical equity structure of Italian firms continuously persists to be the only possible answer to the general market forces.
