The study investigates whether ownership gender diversity and size impact on intellectual capital performance of Italian SMEs. The investigation is carried out through cross-sectional OLS analysis. The intellectual capital performance, the dependent variable, is measured through VAICTM. The ownership gender diversity and size, the independent variables, are measured through a gender diversity index and the number of owners, respectively. The findings show that both gender diversity and size negatively impact on intellectual capital performance. They also show that size tends to moderate the effect of gender diversity on intellectual capital performance.
