El objetivo de este artículo es determinar si la supervisión de las compañías  (no cotizantes en el mercado público de valores y sin problemas de liquidez) por parte de los bancos en el Reino Unido ayuda a superar el problema de la agencia entre los accionistas mayoritarios y minoritarios, y si como consecuencia de esta supervisión los accionistas minoritarios están mejor protegidos por los bancos que por el marco regulatorio vigente en el Reino Unido sobre la protección de accionistas minoritarios



Problema de agencia entre accionistas mayoritarios y minoritarios, contratos de mutuo, bancos como administradores sociales, legislación societaria de Reino Unido
