Corporate Governance Codes and Principles - United Kingdom

The UK Corporate Governance Code
Provenance The Financial Reporting Council
Date September 2014

Access Local download in : English : In this update of the Code the FRC has focussed on the provision by companies of information about the risks which affect longer term viability. In doing so the information needs of investors has been balanced against setting appropriate reporting requirements. Companies will now need to present information to give a clearer and broader view of solvency, liquidity, risk management and viability. For their part, investors will need to assess these statements thoroughly and engage accordingly. In addition, boards of listed companies will need to ensure that executive remuneration is aligned to the long-term success of the company and demonstrate this more clearly to shareholders.
