Abstract

Due to the recent global scandals of large corporations in the most developed markets of the world, the competition of emerging markets to attract global FDI and the decreasing returns of the global stock markets, corporate governance is the "hot" topic both in the world and in Turkey. The corporate governance framework in Turkey is characterized by concentrated ownership, often in the form of family-controlled, financial-industrial company groups. Following OECD principles, the Capital Markets Board of Turkey (CMB) published "Corporate Governance Principles of Turkey" in 2003. The principles are applied on a "comply or explain" basis for companies whose shares are listed on Borsa Istanbul (ISE).
