Abstract [en]

Some studies have shown that managers concentrate large fractions of their wealth in the equity oftheir own firm. In this paper we use a unique dataset and investigate how Swedish owner-managersinvest remaining wealth conditional on a major investment in their own firm. We find no evidencethat owner-managers seek diversification benefits when they invest remaining wealth. Instead someowner-managers invest remaining wealth in the industry where they already have a substantialcapital investment. We conclude that some owner-managers seek to exploit their industry-specificsuperior information when they invest wealth not tied up in their own firms.
