Whether you are a public company or a private company this is an area that is becoming increasingly important and the relationship between companies and their shareholders has never been more under the media spotlight.
Three new Corporate Governance Codes and Principles were released in 2018 (the UK Corporate Governance Code, the QCA Corporate Code and the Wates Corporate Governance Principles) that impact on all public companies and large private companies.
Under the framework of these Codes for companies and the Stewardship Code for investors, the UK is a world leader. But governance is not simply about codes or regulations; it is about relationships and trust. This is embodied in the non-prescriptive nature of the UK’s flexible and strong governance framework, ensuring that the corporate governance regime in the UK supports companies of all sizes. With our experience Guild Financial Advisory are well positioned to provide advice on this crucial area.
