Ownership Structure Dataset has always been a competitive advantage for the NRG Metrics Database. Having a deep knowledge of the literature on Ownership Structure, we created a unique dataset for researchers. We started by providing nearly 60 variables, such as Managerial Ownership, CEO Ownership, Institutional Investors Ownership, Largest Shareholder, Top-5 of Shareholders etc. Afterwards, we added variables for companies with dual-class structure. The next step was to further enhance the Dataset by adding 15 new variables that cover the Pyramid Structure while revealing the identity of the Ultimate Shareholder.
