Corporate governance in the Netherlands
AbstractThis study focuses on Dutch shareholders' structures and the participation by funds and banks in particular. Statistics show that foreigners possess the main part of Dutch shares, funds a relatively large part and banks only a small part. In the Netherlands there has been an increasing interest in shares as part of total assets during 1980-1996. Lately, participation of banks in non-financial institutions have also been growing considerably. Finally, the current Dutch debate on moving towards a more Anglo-Saxon type of governance model is discussed.
