Abstract [en]

Purpose: Understand different needs for accountability and governance among financial firms,based on environmental and structural factors.

Design/methodology/approach: By using disciplinary reports published by SFSA the interpretation of corporate governance regulation will be studied.

Findings: The study identified important corporate governance factors which can be explained and understood by analyzing through the multiple-theory. Complex environmental aspects, such as regulations and multiple stakeholders, demands for extensive internal and external controls. However, the aspect of knowledge does not seem to be fully explained by previous studies.

Originality/value: The result could be a contribution to further discussions on how regulations can develop. Moreover, the result can add empirical data to further develop the multiple-theory.
