Regulatory failure is the direct consequence of poor corporate governance

The success or failure of a business is determined by how well the firm is governed. Corporate governance is the term given to the system by which a firm is directed and controlled and ensures that the objectives of the stakeholders are achieved.

Corporate governance covers every aspect of your organisation from top to bottom starting with the ethical and cultural values through to creating and implementing an effective structure that ensures that all stakeholders interests are addressed in a responsible and compliant manner.

What does corporate governance mean for you?

Corporate governance starts at the top. The main elements set out in the UK Corporate Governance Code are:

  • Leadership
  • Effectiveness
  • Accountability
  • Remuneration
  • Relations with shareholders

Fulfilling these criteria requires careful consideration of the composition your Board and qualities of your senior managers coupled with the effective delegation of responsibilities, proportionate to the size and business profile of your Firm.
