UK's Financial Reporting Council Issues New UK Corporate Governance Code

Better Corporate Governance and Risk Management Through Shareholder Engagement

The Financial Reporting Council (FRC), UK’s independent regulator responsible for promoting high quality corporate governance and reporting to foster investment, has issued a revised UK Corporate Governance Code.  The changes to the Code are designed to strengthen the focus of companies and investors on the longer term and the sustainability of value creation. One aspect of this refocusing is shareholder engagement.  The revised code seeks to ensure better communication between boards and shareholders by improving disclosure and transparency on proxy voting issues.
