The company goal is to maximize the shareholders’ prosperity, not just to maximize profit. The fact is that the company not only has economic responsibility but also social responsibility to the community and its environment. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of good corporate governance (GCG) and corporate social responsibility (CSR) on the firm value. The research sample of 15 companies was taken using purposive sampling from companies listed in the LQ-45 on the Indonesia Stock Exchange for the period of 2014-2017. This study uses panel data regression analysis with Random Effect model method. GCG is a representation of managerial ownership, institutional ownership, independent commissioner, and audit committee. The results of this study indicate that there is a significant influence between GCG and CSR on firm value simultaneously. Partially, independent Commissioners and CSR each have an influence on the firm value, but there is an anomaly.

This paper empirically examines the impact of bank specific characteristics in determining the Islamic banking profitability in Bangladesh. Research period covers 2010–2017. Research method is a panel analysis. Fixed effects model is applied based on the Hausman test. The study takes return on assets (ROA) as the proxy of profitability. Company specific explanatory variables for the study are bank size, capital-to-risk assets (CRAR), investment-to-deposit (liquidity), non-performing investment (NPI), and cost-to-income. The study finds 4 out of 5 variables statistically significant. However, liquidity slightly misses the significance level. We have found CRAR and cost-to-income are negatively correlated, and liquidity is positively correlated to bank profitability as our expectation. On the other hand, estimation shows a negative correlation between bank size and profitability. Moreover, NPI is found to be positively correlated to ROA because Islamic banking industry’s very low percentage of non-performing investment (3.3%) could not inversely affect the profitability.
