Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of the XBRL mandate on pay-performance sensitivity I posit that XBRL improves external monitoring and in turn strengthens the link between pay and performance Irrespective of market-based or accounting-based performance measures the empirical results reveal that pay-performance sensitivity increases after XBRL adoption Moreover I find that firm is likely to give more equity-based compensation after XBRL mandate I also provide evidence that XBRL reporting improves the monitoring environment to a greater extent for small firms In dynamic analysis the result provide evidence to support the causal inferences about the relationship between XBRL implement and compensation contract design
