Abstract


The aim of this paper is to measure the extent of disclosure of voluntary financial information in the annual reports of listed banks in Bangladesh. An effort has also been made to identify the impact of profitability on the level of voluntary disclosure. An unweighted disclosure index with 14 financial items has been used to measure the extent of disclosure. The study reveals that most of the listed banks of Bangladesh are not making satisfactory level of voluntary disclosure with average score of about 42.86%. The findings also show that profitability is not significant in explaining the level of voluntary disclosure of financial information.

Author Keywords: Finance, profitability, Bank of Bangladesh, voluntary.
