Corporate Governance of Banks in Poland and Slovenia

Polona Pašić, Borut Bratina, Mejra Festić

Abstract


This paper focuses on the analysis of the characteristics of corporate governance
in banks in Poland and Slovenia between 2005 and 2013. It studies the impact
of corporate governance in these banks on their performance. The results of our
research show that Slovenia achieved lower average scores for the variables and
indicators related to the transparency of corporate governance than Poland. The
density of banks with the highest corporate governance index scores was higher in
Poland than in Slovenia. When examining the impact of corporate governance on
bank performance as measured with net interest income, the regression analysis
showed that its impact is positive in both countries and that it is statistically
significant in Slovenia.
