Se confirma: las empresas familiares no son más o menos eficientes. Las gestionadas por el fundador, sí.

I find that broadly defined family firms, comprising 35 percent of the sample, do not significantly outperform nonfamily firms during the crisis whether I use market performance measure (Tobin’s Q) or accounting performance measure (Operating Return on Assets (OROA)). However, family firms with founder active involvement (as CEO, a board member or a significant blockholder) show significant higher accounting performance by 18 percent relative to non-family firms during the crisis. Market performance of founder firms, by contrast, does not exhibit difference significantly.
