Family Firms’ Proclivity to Export: The Influence of Corporate Governance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A notable by-product of globalization has been the international expansion of family-owned business. While the academic literature is replete with studies on the family firm, the relationship between export behavior, family control and board composition is absent. Drawing upon a large database from Colombian firms (33,249 firms in the period of 2008 to 2013), one may derive insights into factors that impact the export behavior of family firms in the Latin American context. This study confirms an endogenous relation between corporate governance in terms of board composition (specifically the presence of independent members) and export behavior in family firms.
