Samuel Marikit, Johnson Arvin

Abstract


This paper looks into the impact of the UK code corporate governance on the long term performance of companies. Among the issues that are examined in this research are the principles ingrained in the UK code of corporate governance and the impact of these principles on the performance of the company. Some of these principles include accountability, managerial effectiveness, and remuneration among others. The study employs qualitative and quantitative data analysis methods to provide an answer to the research problem at hand. In the qualitative data analysis process, content analysis is employed to find out the impact of the UK code of corporate governance on the long term performance as established by previous research studies. Quantitative research on the other hand employs questionnaires to establish the impact of the UK code of corporate governance on the long term performance of UK companies. These findings of the research reveal that indeed the UK code of corporate governance plays a very important in influencing the long term performance of companies. It is therefore recommended that all the managers as well as the board of directors of companies effectively comply with the UK code of corporate governance.
