Internal Governance Mechanisms: Evidence from Islamic Banks | Chapter 06 | Current Perspective to Economics and Management Vol. 4

The impact of institutional corporate governance on the financial performance of Islamic banks, with a specific focus on Shari’ah Supervisory Boards and corporate boards. The findings of this study indicate that Islamic banks with Shari’ah Supervisory Boards outperform Islamic banks without such boards, as measured by return on assets (ROA), return on equity (ROE), asset growth (AG), and interest margins (IM). Further findings of this study indicate that the financial performances of Islamic banks with Shari’ah Supervisory Boards and corporate boards are influenced by several board characteristics, including the size of the board and the education of the board members. Moreover, Shari’ah Supervisory Boards provide tighter monitoring and control, as well as more advising and counseling, as compared with Islamic banks without Shari’ah Supervisory Boards. Later findings indicate that Shari’ah Supervisory Boards’ affiliations with international Islamic financial institutions motivate the positive relationship between the Shari’ah Supervisory Boards and Islamic bank performance. Overall, this study provides strong evidence that Shari’ah Supervisory Boards benefit shareholders by complementing corporate boards and thus mitigating agency problems and agency costs.

Forward-Looking Information Based on Integrated Reporting Perspective: Value Relevance Study in Indonesia Stock Exchanges | Chapter 05 | Emerging Issues and Development in Economics and Trade Vol. 3

The International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) in 2013 has formulated the Integrated Report Framework. Integrated reporting provides forward-looking information related to the company’s holistic picture, future targets and the relationship between financial performance and non-financial performance. Indonesia does not require companies to report integrated reporting, but many voluntary ones have provided partial disclosures about aspects that are regulated in the integrated report framework. This study aims to provide empirical evidence about the effect of forward-looking disclosure on firm value. The research population is a manufacturing company on the Indonesia Stock Exchange for the 2015 and 2016 annual reports. The sample is selected based on the availability of annual reports accessed through the company’s web and the Indonesia Stock Exchange. The population is 144 manufacturing, and sample companies were 70 which was collected for two years, so there were 140 firms’ years. The forward-looking measurement is based on the disclosure index. GCG variables are used as control variables because empirically GCG can affect the value of the company. The results of the study showed that forward-looking disclosure has a significant effect on the value of the company and can explain the 20.9% variation in the value of the company.
