2019 Global and Regional Corporate Governance Trends [Russell Reynolds Associates]

Institutional investors (both active managers and index fund giants) spent the last few years raising their expectations of public company boards—a trend we expect to see continue in 2019. The demand for board quality, effectiveness, and accountability to shareholders will continue to accelerate across all global markets.

Toward the end of each year, Russell Reynolds Associates interviews a global mix of institutional and activist investors, pension fund managers, proxy advisors, and other corporate governance professionals regarding the trends and challenges that public company boards may face in the coming year. This year we interviewed over 40 experts to develop our insights and identify trends.

I had the pleasure of assisting Anthony Goodman, Rusty O’Kelley, and Maureen Martin with this piece, which was published by Russell Reynolds Associates.
