The study reveals that important corporate governance measures, such as insider ownership, board size, presence of corporate governance committees, the percentage of directors serving on the boards of other firms and CEO duality, are associated with financial management decisions and firm performance. The associations revealed can potentially assist in mitigating agency problems and improving financial management decisions and performance in maritime firms.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9616||ISSN:||13665545||Rights:||© 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
