An Analysis of the Effectiveness of Corporate Governance for Listed Companies in Mainland China since 2008
Abstract: This paper examines the effectiveness of corporate governance for companies listed in mainland China since 2008, considering the background of the financial crisis and the split share structure reform in China. Based on the data of 1837 listed companies, we conclude that: the proportion of state-owned shares has a significant negative impact on the governance performance overall, but it affects the governance posi-tively in Mining and Quarrying Industry and Social Services Sector; the stake of the largest shareholders of the company, the management, as well as institutional investors have a significant positive impact on the ef-fectiveness of corporate governance; equity balance of large shareholders can improve the effectiveness of corporate governance, except for the Mining and Quarrying Industry; the size of the board and the board of supervisors have a significant positive impact on the governance performance; the proportion of independent directors in a board has no significant effects overall, but can improve the effectiveness of cooperate in IT Industry and Wholesale and Retail Trade Sector, and suppress the effectiveness in the Real Estate Sector.
