Introduction

The new UK Corporate Governance Code and the new QCA Corporate Governance Code have now been published. The changes to these codes affect premium listed companies, which must comply or explain against the UKCGC, and AIM companies which, by September 2018 under new AIM Rules, must choose a recognised corporate governance code against which they must comply or explain.

Participants will learn the points of difference and overlap between the two new codes, how they have been received by the market and how governance issues hit the headlines and caused concerns for companies during the 2018 AGM season.

After a look at market reaction to the new codes, the webinar will conclude with a review of the 2018 AGM season, including shareholder objections on matters such as directors holding too many board positions (known as ‘overboarding’) and executive pay.
