Corporate Governance Manual for Investment Services Directors
The objective of this Manual is to increase awareness amongst Directors who are vital for the proper operation of investment companies and funds. The Manual also provides general guidance on the implementation of good governance in financial services. The global financial crisis of 2007-09 caused severe troubles in the funds industry. These manifested themselves mainly through unprecedented losses in asset value, but also through unexpected and prolonged limitations on shareholder liquidity, operational chaos, extremely compressed and extended time horizons, legal and regulatory paralysis, slow or poor communication from managers, and overall shareholder confusion and even panic.
