The aim of the study is to examine the corporate governance framework and financial performance of Nepalese banking sector. The framework of corporate governance was operationalized by using two variables such as the size of a board and board gender diversity which formed the independent variables while the bank’s profitability is measured in terms of return on equity and return on assets are two dependents variables used in this study. The secondary data are obtained from the annual reports of concerned banks during 5 year period starting from 2014 to 2018.
