Abstract:This study investigates whether specific corporate government practices can have an impact on the overall financial performance of companies in Germany. Data, revealing financial and governance information, are collected via the database Orbis and the annual reports of 39 companies located in Germany for the years 2006 until 2014. The companies are drawn from the top 500 European companies. The mixed linear model has been identified as the method in order to identify whether gender, age or nationality can demonstrate an effect on ROA and / or ROE. Empirical results indicate that only age is demonstrating a positive and significant effect on the ROE whereas gender and nationality do not show any significant results on both ROE and / or ROA. Therefore, this research demonstrates that not all corporate governance practices do have an impact on firm financial performance in Germany.
