The Association between Firm-Specific Characteristics and Financial Information Disclosure Levels: A Study of Rural Banks in the Ashanti Region of Ghana (Agyei-Mensah B. K.)

Corporate Governance in Banking Information Asymmetry and Transparency

Abstract This study was conducted to investigate the influence of firm-specific characteristics which include firm size, profitability, debt equity ratio, liquidity and audit firm size on voluntary disclosure level of rural banks in the Ashanti region of Ghana.

Descriptive analysis was performed to provide the background statistics of the variables examined. This was followed by regression analysis which forms the main data analysis. The results indicate that profitability represented by Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) is positively related to the disclosure level. Whilst Debt equity ratio, liquidity, firm size and audit firm size were insignificantly related to the disclosure level.
