    Abstract: This study examines the impact of board composition and risk management on
    corporate performance in the Taiwanese life insurance industry. In terms of board
    composition variables, the CEO/chairperson duality is associated with lower corporate
    performance. Insurers with higher percentages of independent directors on their
    boards tend to have better corporate performance. However, the higher percentage
    of supervisors on the board is associated with lower corporate performance. Evidence
    shows that the corporate performance of insurers with risk management does not
    change compared with that of insurers without risk management, when controlling
    for board composition characteristics. An examination of the impact of government
    regulations on corporate performance indicates that insurers do not show significant
    changes when controlling for board composition and risk management variables.
    Overall results also show that board composition variables affect corporate
    performance. Finally, this study concludes that an insurer can control its corporate
    performance through corporate governance mechanism.
