Abstract: Because of their integration and internal development process in holding companies can reduce information asymmetry and financial constraints; they play a key role in creating value for shareholders on one hand and society on the other hand. But the type of financial reporting credibility for these companies is different from other ones. The investment status as well as the amount and level of ownership and ultimately the intra-group transactions create special conditions for them. Therefore, different risk indicators and different control structures emerge in holding companies. It is worth noting that each holding company is made up of different purposes. In this research, 33 holdings accepted in Tehran stock exchange are selected, we find that, most of which are pure investing structure. our findings about ownership and corporate control revealed that most of the holdings were held by retirement funds (37% on average), followed by large industrial and manufacturing companies with 24% ownership on average. In examining the type of auditor’s report in the holding companies, it was found that most of the mere investing holdings received a qualified report. Also, about 60% of the holdings had changed CEO in the last two years, and in some cases, the number of CEOs has changed four times over the past two years, indicating a lack of managerial instability in them.
