Thus, the current work aims to responding the following question: does the corporate governance of an organization influence its diversification strategy? Considering that most research to date has focused on the governance structure of large public limited companies, we considered it would be useful to centre our study on organizations lacking alienable property rights and with an allocation of decision rights decided by law -this is the case of the Spanish savings banks. The results obtained show that board size, number of meetings, and ROE are positively associated with diversification.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/110896||ISSN:||1810-3057||DOI:||10.22495/cocv5i1c4p2||Source:||Corporate Ownership & Control, 5(1-4), 332-344.|
