Globally, the recent economic crisis with its high-profile corporate failures has turned the spotlight on corporate governance. While on one hand, regulators are strengthening regulations and making it more prescriptive, companies are revisiting their governance structures, disclosure practices, risk management practices, etc. in an effort to regain investor confidence and counter increasing shareholder activism.
In India, while the effects of economic crisis have been minimal, corporate governance has been brought to the fore by businesses seeking to establish a global footprint and build their reputation at a global level. These companies are therefore looking at improving their corporate governance practices not just to achieve compliance but to help them improve their businesses and position them for competitive advantage.
