About The Book

This book makes a comprehensive attempt to explain the concepts of corporate governance, details the perspectives from cross-sections of people citing the definitions for corporate governance. The third chapter brings out the significance of corporate governance debating and validating the need for companies to follow good governance. This is followed logically by an outline of the models prevalent in India, with comparative models prevalent across the nations. The literature review briefly brings out the empirical research studies that have found strong relation between good governance and good financial performance.

There has been a sincere attempt to design a statistical model to validate the hypothesis that good governance leads to good financial performance. The highlights of the findings clearly justify that companies well governed enjoy a better market capitalization over the companies that are not so well governed.

This hook is being written keeping in mind the needs of the practitioners, management students and researchers who seek knowledge on conceptual and practical information on the corporate governance practices.
