Gender equal boards : A quantitative study of gender equal boards relation to financial performance (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: The debate on gender equality is a topical subject in Sweden as well as the rest of the world. A gender quota law was proposed for Swedish listed companies but was outvoted. Is there a connection between gender equal companies and financial performance?

Purpose: The main purpose of this study aims to investigate if companies with gender equal boards financially outperforms companies who does not have a gender equal board.

Method: The thesis is based on a quantitative method along with a deductive approach in order to collect secondary data. Multiple regression analysis was performed in order to test the results against Critical Mass Theory, Resource Dependence Theory and previous research findings.

Conclusion: The results of the study conclude that there is a significant positive relationship between gender equal boards and a higher market value. Furthermore, our findings show no significant relationship between gender equal boards and profitability.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Jämställdhetsdebatten är ett aktuellt ämne både i Sverige som i världen. Ett förslag om könskvotering bland bolagsstyrelser på börsen i Sverige lades fram men blev nedröstat. Finns det en koppling mellan jämställda bolagsstyrelser och finansiell prestation?

Syfte: Studiens syfte avser att undersöka om företag på Stockholmsbörsen med jämställda bolagsstyrelser har en högre finansiell prestation jämfört med företag som har en icke-jämställd bolagsstyrelse.

Metod: Genom ett kvantitativt angreppssätt och deduktiv ansats har studien tagit del av sekundärdata. Studien har använt multipla regressionsanalyser för att testa dess resultat mot Critical Mass Theory, Resource Dependence Theory samt tidigare forskning.

Slutsats: Studiens resultat påvisar att det finns ett statistiskt signifikant samband mellan jämställda bolagsstyrelser och ett ökat marknadsvärde. Vidare finner studien inget statistiskt signifikant samband mellan jämställda bolagsstyrelser och företags lönsamhet.
