"An empirical evaluation of the role of corporate governance mechanisms in discharging managerial accountability"
According to the Hampel Report, the directors as a board are responsible for relations with stakeholders; but they are accountable to shareholders (1998, p11). From this perspective, company directors are responsible and accountable to increase shareholders’ wealth.
Previous studies examined the relationship between corporate governance and corporate financial performance failed to reach a consensus due some reasons related to, to name but a few; sample size concern, omitted variables and a failure to address the firm-specific characteristics.
The motivation of my research is to fill this research gap in an attempt to resolve the relationship between financial performance and corporate financial performance. Additionally, one of the contributions this study is going to provide is to examine the probability of the existence of a mediator that controls this relationship. Finally, agency conflicts will be used as a proxy to reduce the sample heterogeneity for better results.
