Risk encroachment into Corporate Governance (CG) remains a continuous process that required an efficient and long-term solution. Using enterprise risk management (ERM) as a moderating variable on the relationship between board structures and corporate performance is remains an area unexploited in CG research. This relationship can effectively measure by the extent of ERM interactions between board structures and corporate performance. Despite various studies on CG mechanisms, firm performance, ERM implementation level, and gender diversity, the empirical results appeared inconclusive and the findings are inconsistent. None of the studies have addressed the role play by ERM as a moderator between director ownership, the board size, board independence, the total number of women on the board, number of Muslim directors on the board, and firm performance. It is demonstrated that the ERM has the potential to moderate between the different board structures and corporate performance, and this moderation has never been reported in the literature. It is expected that this ERM moderation may considerably improve corporate performance by determining the strength or weakness of the relationship between board structures and firm performance. Thus, this paper, with regards to available literature, conceptualized that ‘ERM’ moderates the relationship between Board Size, Board Independence, Director Ownership, Total Women in the Board, Muslim directors on the Board, and corporate performance.
