文章摘要:The Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges continue to strengthen ex-post supervisionwith the development and improvement of the Chinese capital market. The number of annual report comment letters (ARCLs) issued by them has been increasing over the years. Focusing on the financial expertise of board secretaries, who are directly responsible for disclosure, this paper thoroughly explores whether such expertise can impact regulatory inquiries. We document that financial expert board secretaries significantly reduces the likelihood, frequency, and characters of firms’ receipt of ARCLs and the likelihood of firms’ delay of responses to ARCLs. Further, we find that the influence of board secretaries with financial expertise on ARCLs mainly exists in the non-state-owned enterprises and enterprises with a poor internal or external governance environment. In addition, if the board secretary serves as the firm’s CFO or serves earlier than the CFO (CEO), the main effects are more pronounced. The mechanism test results show that financial expert board secretaries can reduce the accrual-based earnings management. Overall, this research not only reveals the impact of top managers’ characteristics on regulatory inquiries from the perspective of board secretaries but also has important practical significance for understanding the role of board secretaries in improving firms’ information disclosure quality.
