Corporate governance refers to the system by which corporations are directed and controlled. This course will focus on reviewing the history of corporate governance in the UK, US and Guernsey. It looks at the impact of the regulations on business practices and how these can be applied in our existing roles and will also look at the implementation of the Guernsey corporate governance rules introduced in 2012.
This half day course is aimed at delegates with 3-5 years’ experience.
Corporate governance is a term that is widely used within organisations. It rightly means different things to different people. Listed companies have been the initial types of organisations to be subject to corporate governance standards, following a number of corporate scandals.
The regulatory environment in Guernsey has now changed. Regulated entities are now required to meet the requirements of the “Code of Corporate Governance”. Its introduction, although much briefer than originally expected, requires entities to potentially change, or at the very least document their compliance with the code.
