Abstract

After treating the subject between the 2015-2019 financial year, we are supposed to test the same hypotheses published in the previous article during COVID Crisis. This article aims to measure the impact of banking governance on risk taking and bank performance, particularly during the COVID19 period, by working on the same sample. The data for the Y-2020 was extracted from S&P Capital IQ. A comparison between the results obtained in 2019 vs 2020 are based on the same assumptions. We conclude that the presence of the Sovereign Wealth Fund ownership, women on board committee, independent administrators has a positive impact on the performance of banks in the region, with some changes reported in detail.
The article presents a detailed study describing the impact of governance mechanisms before and during Covid crisis.
