Gupta, Kartick and Krishnamurti, Chandrasekhar and Tourani-Rad, Alireza (2010) Financial development, corporate governance and cost of equity capital. In: Inaugural Finance and Corporate Governance Conference (FCGC 2010), 7-9 Apr 2010, Melbourne, Australia.
This paper explicitly examines the interactive impact of country level legal and financial development, and firm level governance attributes on the cost of equity capital. Using a comprehensive sample of 7380 firm years drawn from 22 developed countries, we show that firm level governance attributes affect the cost of equity capital only in the Common Law countries with high level of financial development. Our study is the first to highlight the complementary effects of legal origin, financial development and firm level governance attributes in influencing the cost of equity capital.
