heal.abstract
This study aims to shed light into the impact of board characteristics (i.e., gender and ethnic diversity, independence, board size and CEO duality) on firm performance (capture by Tobin’s Q and ROA). Using empirical data from 2,507 corporations located in 22 European Union countries and for the period spanning from 2000 to 2017, we demonstrate interesting associations. Although we evidence a positive effect of female directors on firm financial and market performances, the average share of female in the boards of directors remains low, as it is only 11%. Also our findings indicate that there is no significant relation between board diversity and CEO duality on firm performance. Additionally, we evidence that ethnic diversity is more widespread as compared to gender diversity on the boardroom, since 19% of directors have a different ethnic background than the country of corporate headquarters. The effectiveness on the firm performance although was not significant and appeared to have a negative prospect as concern financial performance and negative in terms of market performance. Board size has been also proved to have no effect on firm performance.
