Abstract

(Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) En este trabajo se trata la separación de la propiedad y el control de una muestra de 140 compañías no financieras inscritas en bolsa en Colombia durante el período de 1996 a 2002. Al desglosarse la muestra según la situación de la inscripción en bolsa y la actividad económica exhibida por las compañías, se descubre que los derechos de voto son mayores que los derechos sobre el flujo de caja, a causa de la presencia de tenencia indirecta entre compañías que pertenecen principalmente a grupos propietarios piramidales y cruzados. La muestra del estudio también incluye un conjunto importante de empresas no vinculadas. Las estadísticas de propiedad muestran una elevada concentración entre los cuatro mayores bloques de voto, lo cual es similar a los niveles observados en Europa continental, pero la mayor participación tiene derechos de voto que son, en promedio, 20% menores que el promedio observado en la región. Por último, los fondos de inversión y en fideicomiso cumplen un papel medular como contralores de última instancia de esos grupos.
