Stock With Significant Family Influence SSFI

The term stock with significant family influence (SSFI) denotes the stock of a company over which a single family wields significant influence.

Corporate decisions governing companies with significant family influence rest primarily in the hands of just one family which holds a majority of voting shares. This sets SSFIs apart from the stocks of companies which are owned and controlled by a broad base of shareholders.

SSFIs typically show less volatility than other stocks and tend to grow in value more slowly while delivering steady long-term capital gains.

The performance of 40 key SSFIs is tracked by the Credit Suisse Family Index (CSFAM).
