The recent crisis of financial sector regulation that hit many Western economies is becoming an increasingly important topic of research and policy. The present study investigates whether and how corporate governance mechanisms which have been introduced to improve banks’ resilience to shocks affect the life of financial networks at different levels, namely, firm-specific and firm-network contexts. Using a unique dataset provided by the Italian Banking Authority (Authority) containing information on a total of 216.000 bank-specific, 4.6 million agent and 4.2 million client accounts and information about firms’ compliance and governance performance from 2000 to 2009, the study exploits data from the ISTAT firm-level database on Italian listed firms. Each firm has been observed at the time of its listing and at the following two waves, covering a span of more than eight years. At the firm level, compliance and governance is observed through the two variables Compliance and Governance. At the individual level, agent- and client-level accounts are measured through their wealth indicators. A firm-network analysis method is applied in order to identify contagion effects between firms. The results highlight that the introduction of governance affects the life of financial networks. Firms with better compliance are more likely to provide better quality service to their clients, through direct recommendations and better services and may have therefore stronger relationships with their clients. A stronger relationship between firms has a positive effect on their survival probability, suggesting that financial networks have a strong stabilizing effect on firms in financial distress.
ISO 10725:2000 Pipe gaskets and couplings for welding. This standard contains requirements for pipe gaskets and couplings intended for welding. It provides test methods for determining the adhesion between the pipe gasket and the pipe, and the heat-resistance and mechanical properties of the material. In addition, it provides requirements for the material composition and surface treatment of welded piping. The PC version of the original Dying Light surpassed the performance of the console versions of the game on PC. And the PC version of the follow-up Dying Light 2 is better than the PS4 or Xbox One versions. This has been confirmed at the biggest trade show in Germany, Gamescom 2015, but before that at the GDC 2015. Other researchers have not used this data set for outlier loci detection either because they did not use this algorithm, e.g. it was not implemented in the latest releases of PCAdapt [ 60 ], or did not have the SNPs with strong correlations with the first population structure PC. ISO 13506 Laboratory design for chemical and biological safety – Safety of laboratories. This standard specifies the requirements for the design of chemical and biological (CB) laboratories. It is used for laboratories which are not included in a new or updated standard or directive, i.e., which are ISO 13500 class laboratories. An ISO recognized class can be derived from the package by multiplying the dimensions of the package along with appropriate unit conversions. For example, the width of an M&M’s package is 21 mm (0.8 inch). To derive the corresponding ISO class from this dimension, use the following equation: 5ec8ef588b
