Literature Review

  • Robert C. Gericke
Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


This section reviews the relevant literature on corporate governance, risk management, and compliance as well as on financial institutions/banking and the latest financial crisis.The main body of literature relates to “household” questions of corporate governance, such as composition, structure and independence of boards, remuneration of top managers, information disclosure, auditing, shareholder involvement and ownership structure. Another related issue at stake is the increasing complexity of the financial system and the growing sophistication of its participants who act either as providers, users or intermediaries of corporate financing. The increasing significance of corporate governance topics over the past decades thus not only broadened the spectrum of areas covered, but also started to expand the spotlight from the United States to other markets, including important, consolidated economies such as the UK and Germany, as well as emerging markets like Russia, India, China and Brazil—the so-called BRIC countries.
