The world’s regulators are increasingly looking to corporate governance as a means of restoring confidence in the financial marketplace and indeed the UK Government has just released a discussion paper entitled “Transparency and trust” which considers strengthening areas of corporate governance including ownership and directors’ accountability. The discussion paper incorporates recommendations from the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards and follows on from a commitment made at the recent G8 summit.
With corporate governance in the spotlight it is a subject which all those in positions of trust within the corporate structure ignore at their peril. This includes not only directors but also the senior management team, legal and accounts executives and all those who have responsibility for corporate strategy, risk and policy implementation.
