Return on asset among family firms, non-family firms, and former State-Owned Enterprises
New article in the prestige journal Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice

Dr. Trung Quang Dinh, Assistant Professor at School of Business and Science at the University of Akureyri just published an article in the prestige journal Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice. 

In this study, Dr. Dinh and his colleagues investigate the impact of political connections on firm performance measured by return on asset (ROA) among family firms, non-family firms, and former State-Owned Enterprises. 

It was found that family firms perform better than other types of firms in that they have a high portion of politically connected directors on their boards. 

Within family firms, the top-performing ones either have non-family CEOs run their firms or they have family CEOs combined with politically connected boards of directors.
