Board governance and company secretariat

Corporate governance speaks volumes about any business. Done well, it gives a message that a business is serious and worth investing in. Poor corporate governance is often an indication of a lack of respect for regulation and may be associated with other risks such as latent litigation.

Directors cannot outsource accountability for regulatory compliance or governance, and are potentially personally liable for any shortcomings.

Potential investors or purchasors of a business will want to be certain that there are no governance issues with a target investment. Maintaining an upto date virtual data room and holding regular board meetings with an agenda which has been prepared and executed in a manner which addresses all of the relevant corporate governance is critical.

For these reasons, many businesses elect to out-source the administration associated with governance and regulatory compliance. This has the added benefit of allowing the executuive team to concentrate on the strategic direction and management of the operation. Compliance requires attention to detail.
