Institutional ownership and corporate transparency in China

Finance Research Letters, 2018, vol. 24, issue C, 328-336
This letter examines the effect of institutional ownership on corporate information transparency in Chinese listed firms. We find strong evidence that mutual fund and qualified foreign institutional investors significantly improve corporate transparency. Our results suggest that institutional shareholders play an important role in improving both corporate governance and accounting transparency and are consistent with the view that institutional investors monitor and protect the interests of minority shareholders.
