Abstract

This research aims to examine the relationship between corporate governance and the cost of equity of a company listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand. The overall sample
(913 items) covers the year 2010 to 2012. The research results show that the majority of listed companies have 8-10 directors with 33% - 50 % independent directors. However, 5% of the
overall sample reveals that there are less than 33 % of independent directors who do not meet the requirements of good corporate government. The results also show that there is a negative
