We test the effect of board independence on corporate purchases of property insurance. We find that board independence increases the incidence of property insurance use but does not have a significant effect on the extent of property insurance use given that a firm decides to insure its assets. These findings are consistent with the argument that: (1) more independent boards view it necessary to have property insurance to manage asset-loss risks and (2) excessive insurance or insurance purchases induced by managerial risk aversion and/or self-interest does not benefit shareholders and so may not be supported by independent boards
