Abstract
This study aims to investigate the relationship between corporate governance and financial
performance of listed Singaporean companies. We collect the data from 137 listed companies
for the period of four years from 2013 to 2016. In this research, corporate governance is
driven by a wide range of variables, which include the dual role CEO, board size and board
independence. Besides, the financial performance is measured by three different methods,
which include return on asset, return on equity and Tobin’s Q. Our findings show that there is
an inverse association between board size and firm performance, however, we do not find any
significant relationships between board dependence, CEO duality and company financial
performance.
