内容简介:We analyze the role of institutional cross-ownership in internalizing corporate governanceexternalities using data on mutual fund proxy voting. Exploiting the variation in cross-ownershipacross institutions within a given proposal as well as the variation in cross-ownership across firmswithin a given institution’s portfolio, we show that an institution’s holdings in peer firms increasethe likelihood that the institution votes against management in shareholder-sponsored governanceproposals. This relation is stronger for firms whose managers are likely to have more outsideopportunities. Consistent with a causal interpretation of our results, we find that increases in cross-ownership induced by financial institution mergers lead to a higher likelihood that the acquirerinstitution votes against management. We further show that high aggregate cross-ownershippositively predicts management losing a vote. Overall, our evidence suggests that institutionalcross-ownership improves governance by alleviating the inefficiency resulting from corporategovernance externalities.
