Internal ownership by the CEO is today a control mechanism that is being used frequently but with the wrong focus it could be used för own benefit maximization.

The selection for the study is companies listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange's small, mid and large-cap. Our collected data is the company's financial information from annual reports and Thomson Reuters Datastream. Statistical tests have then been made to analyze the data.  

Conclusion: The result of our statistical tests is different from our theory and hypothesis formulations. We have achieved significant results but not to the extent that we have been able to determine whether internal ownership as a control mechanism works or not.
