Abstract: Using an econometric framework, we examine the nature of relation between Tobin's Q and family shareholding in India. While there is no obvious causality laid down by theoretical literature, empirical evidences show a wide range of findings. In the present work, by controlling for a host of factors, we document a non-linear relation between family share holding and firm value. In the literature, the issue of endogenous problem is highlighted in the context of ownership-performance relation. We address this concern via the instrumental variable regression method. Even though the curvilinear aspect of the relation between firm value and insider share remain intact in all of the specifications, our model statistics do not trace any endogenous problem in the data.
