Board




The boards of listed as well as non-listed companies have recently come under increased scrutiny both from regulatory bodies and investors, in particular in the context of the recent financial crisis. Corporate governance best practice and diversity are some of the key issues that dominate the agenda.


In addition, boards are increasingly expected to be making a contribution to value creation. In the area of risk management too, corporate governance is taking centre stage, often making it necessary to rebuild decision-making bodies. Sound professional knowledge, an outstanding reputation as well as personal and ethical integrity are indispensable requirements.
