Synopsis: This book goes beyond the 'what and how' of corporate governance to explore the impact and benefits of good governance for companies and their investors. The contributors are leading market practitioners, investors, academics and consultants who offer their own views based on a wealth of experience. Topics covered include what makes for an effective board and is the unitary board sustainable? The contribution of governance to financial performance - is the research conclusive? Managing risk and reputation - how do boards ensure they are trusted by their shareholders? The benefits of market led standard setting -do US and EU regulatory initiatives threaten the traditional UK approach? The book looks to dispel the belief that governance is a burden on companies that adds little value by demonstrating the contribution it makes to board effectiveness and corporate performance.

Book Description: '? compelling book ? [that] has pulled together an effective argument as to why more boards and directors should put good corporate governance higher up the agenda. ? a well honed collection of essays on the positive impact of good corporate governance.' The Director magazine

'I thought it was a splendid effort and wished it had been available when I was starting at the FRC. ? The contributors ? did a fine job and all the chapters are worth reading.' Sir Christopher Hogg, Chairman of the Financial Reporting Council
