Abstract: The objective of this study is to examine the impact of financial decisions on the ownershipstructure. This study adopted two themes of ownership structure (e.g., 25% & 50%) thatcategorized the family-owned firms (FOF) and non-family firms (NFOF). The data wascollected from 286 firms listed at GCC stock exchanges annual reports, stock exchangedatabase, and DataStream that range from 2010-2016 periods. The findings of this study showed that the FOFs have lesser investment-internal fund sensitivity than NFOFs. Though, there is an insignificant effect of the block holder on investment funds sensitivity. However, the little implication of dividend payout in FOFs as compare to NFOFs was disclosed in the results. Moreover, it wrapped up that there are less agency problems and informationasymmetry in FOFs comparatively
