Session 261

Shareholder Primacy and Corporate Policy

Track F

Date: Sunday, October 11, 2009


Time: 13:00 – 14:30

Interest Group Panel

Room: Meeting Room 3

Session Chair:
Robert Wiseman, Michigan State University


This workshop examines shareholder primacy by exploring the motives of different investor groups, and how these differences may affect corporate policy, strategy and performance. Corporate governance research in the Management literature has largely focused on the role of incentive structures and board monitoring, giving some but limited attention to the possible influence of investors on corporate policy and performance. Some of the issues addressed in this workshop consider the extent to which corporate “poison pill” bylaws limiting voting rights of large shareholders may affect blockholder dynamics, whether the presence of specific investor groups can in fact influence corporate policy, firm strategy, governance structure or performance, and how different investor groups should be identified and measured.
