Corporate Governance Policy and Company Performance: The Case of Portugal

Carlos Alves () and Victor Mendes ()

FEP Working Papers from Universidade do Porto, Faculdade de Economia do Porto

Abstract: Several supervisory authorities and governmental working groups issued recommendations on corporate governance for listed companies during the nineties. In this paper, we used a unique database that allowed us to analyse the relationship between the level of compliance of the recommendations issued by the Portuguese Securities Market Commission and the (abnormal) returns of the concerned companies. By using a multifactor model, one can conclude that there is a positive relationship between the compliance of some of these recommendations and the abnormal returns that were determined. The recommendations on the structure and functioning of the executive board deserve a special attention.
