CUHK Business School Research Sheds New Light on Economic Benefits of Women on IPO Firm Boards

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 09:00:00 EDT

HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2017) -  The following article was first published in the China Business Knowledge (CBK) website by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School - https://goo.gl/FwnUq3: The gender composition of corporate boards is currently a hotly-debated topic, with regulators, lobby groups and social commentators all active in the push for greater female board representation. The literature suggests that female empowerment offers potential corporate advantage, due to the enhanced monitoring, mentoring and other synergies wrought by gender-diversity. The recent article by Paul B. McGuinness, Professor of Department of Finance at CUHK Business School in the Journal of Business Ethics, entitled "IPO Firm Performance and Its Link with Board Officer Gender, Family-Ties and Other Demographics"1, delves into and sheds new light on this central issue. The study considers how female board presence and family linkage shape long-run stock and financial returns in IPO firms listing on Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited's (HKEX) Main Board. The purpose of the present discussion is threefold. First, to profile my study's principal findings. Second, to extend its ambit by assessing policy implications. Third, to consider recent regulatory developments.
