Market Perception of SOX Act in the Case of US Listed Banks
AbstractThis paper examines the net effect of Sarbanes – Oxley Act of 2002 onto market valuation of bank holding shares. Overall analysis finds significant price growth in the years following the SOX Act. At the same time liquidity of the bank shares has improved, which implies SOX Act has produced benefits for US listed bank holdings. When analyzing shorter sequences, we confirm that banking industry enjoys reputation as well regulated industry as opposed to other industries, which drove the share prices and liquidity up.
