This book focuses on the effects of corporate governance and the financial crisis on the performance of investment banks in the US from 2005-2014. This time frame covers periods before, during and after the financial crisis of 2007. Using data on 16 US investment banks we examine the effects of three corporate governance variables (CEO duality, board size and board independence) on the profitability of investment banks using Return on average asset and return on average equity as our measure of performance. Results show that, CEO DUALITY had a negative effect on ROAA for all time periods which is inconsistent with the stewardship hypothesis. We also found a positive relationship between board size and performance before the crisis and a negative relationship during and after the financial crisis. Most importantly, we found evidence to show that the increase in non-executive directors on the board resulted to an increase in profitability for all time periods.
