Corporate Ownership And Control In The U.K., Germany, And France
Like its U.S. counterpart, the U.K. corporate ownership and governance system can be characterized as an "outsider" system with a large number of public corporations, widely dispersed ownership (though with growing concentrations of institutional shareholdings), and well-developed takeover markets. By contrast, the much smaller number and proportion of publicly traded German and French corporations are governed by "insider" systems--those in which the founding families, banks, or other companies have controlling interests and in which outside shareholders are not able to exert much control. 1997 Morgan Stanley.
