Corporate Social Responsibility Disclosure and Financial Performance of Listed Insurance Firms in Nigeria


The backdrop of contending views that CSR is merely façade, just a marketing campaign, and that CSR disclosures among insurance companies in Nigeria are very scanty; whereas organizations desire to be seen as legitimate corporate citizens satisfying various stakeholders, justify this study to examine the relationship between corporate social responsibility disclosure and financial performance of listed insurance companies in Nigeria. Based on the ex-post-facto research design, this study employed secondary data obtained from published financial statements of sampled seven insurance firms between 2015 and 2022. These seven insurance companies are all currently listed in Nigerian Exchange Group. The data gathered was analysed using simple linear regression technique based on the ordinary least square method assisted by E-Views version 9. Three hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance based on the specific study objectives, using the results of analysis. The findings revealed that corporate social responsibility disclosures have statistically positive significant relationship with earnings per share, net profit margin, and return on assets of listed insurance firms in Nigeria. It was recommended that the management of insurance companies should adopt policies that would favour appropriate increase in corporate social responsibility to enhance performance and peaceful coexistence with their host communities.
