This paper demonstrates the effect of ownership concentration among large shareholders on corporate governance disclosure (CGD) in Kuwait. Secondary data were collected from 82 non-financial firms listed on the Kuwait Stock Exchange in 2018. The study used an ordinary least square regression. The 35-item CGD index served as the dependent variable while the independent variables comprised four variables of ownership and four control variables. Ownership concentration by institutions and government negatively affected the CGD index; ownership concentration by blockholders or families (individuals) had no significant impact on the CGD index.
