The current study scrutinizes the moderating role of family ownership on the relationship between social responsibility and information asymmetry. The research method is descriptive-correlational and the research design is experimental with ex post facto approach. In order to test the research hypotheses, multivariate linear regression based on combined data has been used and by means of statistical and econometric methods, the relationship between independent variables and the dependent variable has been examined. The research findings indicate that family ownership does not significantly moderate the relationship between social responsibility and information asymmetry. The findings are consistent with the findings of Ferrero et al. (2017).
