Abstract

Corporate governance has become very much a part of the business language and its importance continues to be reinforced by recent corporate scandals worldwide. However, while good corporate governance aims to reduce the risks of fraud and mismanagement in companies, it is also about improving the functioning of these companies. Good corporate governance is not only about conformance with laws, rules, standards and codes but also about enhancing performance and shareholder value. This book approaches corporate governance from a multi-disciplinary perspective and emphasises not only conformance issues but also best practices designed to enhance company performance and shareholder value. The book provides an overview of corporate governance, including practices and developments in the Asian region and internationally, and comprehensive coverage of important areas of corporate governance relating to the board of directors, remuneration, accountability, communication with investors, risk management and audit. It is balanced between theory and practice and is written with an Asian audience in mind. Contributors to the book include academics, regulators, directors, senior executives and other industry professionals. This book is intended for use in MBA, executive MBA and other executive and professional programmes in corporate governance.
