Owners of the World’s Listed Companies
This report provides reliable and up-to-date information about corporate ownership structures. The report builds on a unique dataset of firm-level ownership information of almost 10 000 large listed companies worldwide that together represent 90 percent of the global stock market capitalization and a combined market value of USD 75 trillion. The authors present a comprehensive global overview of how ownership is distributed among different categories of investors and cross-border ownership as well as of the degree of ownership concentration at the company level. The report has been developed by Alejandra Medina, Adriana De La Cruz and Yung Tang at the Corporate Governance and Corporate Finance Division of the OECD, under the supervision of the Head of Division, Mats Isaksson.
