Abstract

This study questions the new Corporate Governance legislations´ immediate effects on firm performance, for corporates listed in the industrial sector both in Chile and Mexico. It is concluded that these are not significant (within countries), although the positive firm effect in Chile is greater than in Mexico (between countries). In addition, property concentration convenience in Chile and Mexico is addressed. It is found that in both countries there is a negative association (which is stable pre-post legislation) between property dispersion and ROA, for companies belonging to the industrial sector.
