Internet Information Relevance of Financial Institutions: Evidence from Taiwan
This study investigates the perception of factors that are likely to influence the Internet information relevance of financial institutions. The media richness theory and stakeholder theory point out that the extent of information and stakeholder communication will influence the utilization of online information, while not many of these discussions are associated with financial institutions. This study integrates seven information categories into three constructs: sufficiency, stakeholder communication and external supervision, using a structural equation model to examine whether the three constructs relate to information utilization. The results show that stakeholder communication and external oversight are significantly related to the user's intention to utilize online information of financial institutions, while information sufficiency is not. These findings correspond to stakeholder theory as well as international guidelines that emphasize external oversight of financial institutions.
