KPMG’s Global Valuation Institute (GVI) is pleased to introduce its eighth management paper, When fundamental investors relieve market pressures on management: Evidence from Europe.

This latest management paper shows that firms with greater fundamental investor ownership experience lower market reactions to earnings announcements and lower mispricing. Fundamental investors – defined as investors who, on average, hold their shares for at least two years – are not focused on short-term performance and have a longer investment horizon. Based on a comprehensive sample of listed European companies, the paper’s findings suggest that fundamental investor ownership reduces the degree of market mispricing and overreactions, which, in turn, serves long-run shareholder value maximization.
