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

The following article is written by Paul B. McGuinness, Professor of Department of Finance at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School and was first published in the China Business Knowledge (CBK) website by 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. My recent article 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.
