CMi2i, one of Europe’s leading investor relations and corporate governance consultancies, canvassed the opinions of institutions managing over US$5 trillion of assets. This survey found that the majority of asset managers now expect to meet with executive management more frequently on issues such as remuneration, board structures, succession planning and cyber security.
On February 17th, BDTI held its English Director Boot Camp , attended by a number of experienced participants. Participants from various companies heard lectures about corporate governance and related topics by Nicholas Benes and Andrew Silberman of AMT, and exchanged experiences and opinions at a spacious, comfortable room kindly donated for our use by Cosmo Public Relations, a leading communications and PR firm in Tokyo.
Thank you all for your active participation!
We are planning to hold the next course on April 20th. Sign up early!

”The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has recently released a report of a survey that was conducted based on the responses to a questionnaire on corporate governance frameworks that was disseminated to partner organisations in the 14 participating Asian jurisdictions in May 2016. These included Bangladesh, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
The survey which is a useful document to all stakeholders that are working towards corporate governance reforms in the region is a reflection of current status of practices and standards. Role of stakeholders, disclosure of related parties, shareholder rights, board and ownerships structures are some of the key areas highlighted.”
