A study of companies listed on the Iraqi Stock Exchange (ISX) examines the impact of ownership structure on information asymmetry. To determine ownership structure dimensions, divide the shares of each dimension by the total number of shares. A High-Low spread was used to measure the information asymmetry. The data is derived from the annual financial statements and trading bulletins from 2015 to 2019. According to the results of the current study's statistical analysis, there is a significant correlation between the dimensions of the ownership structure (Managerial Ownership, largest shareholders, State ownership, institutional Ownership, family ownership) and information asymmetry.
