Abstract

This paper examines how family firms behave differently from non-family firms in making their funding decisions. By applying panel regression models for samples of Vietnamese listed companies in the consumer product and industrials industries over the 2008-2016 period, the authors find that family firms have higher debt ratios than non-family firms. Effects of business characteristics on financing decisions also differ from family firms and non-family firms. Particularly, asset tangibility appears to be the important influencing factor of the debt levels in non-family firms, whereas it does not have any impact on capital structure of family firms.
