Abstract and Keywords

This chapter studies the problem of multiple agent conflicts. It states that majority of ownership is taken from institutional investors who are also agents to ultimate principals. It studies the dual identities of these institutional investors—who are also called “agent-owners”—and introduces the multiple agency theory. It then expands this theory though an analysis of the potential conflicts and effects caused by agent-owners and other relevant governance actors.

Keywords: multiple agent conflicts, majority of ownership, institutional investors, agent-owners, multiple agency theory, governance actors
