Corporate governance is at a crossroads. While many reforms are progressing, a number of the changes implemented after the market crash are being rolled back. Is the pendulum reversing against further reform? With talk of curtailing Sarbanes-Oxley 404 reforms and increased scrutiny of the activities of aggressive activist hedge funds, are the proper mechanisms in place to ensure that management acts in the interest of shareholders? Will the momentum behind majority voting, executive compensation, and disclosure reform continue, or will “governance fatigue” set in? How has the high level of private equity activity affected the governance responsibilities of corporate directors? Join top academics, lawmakers, and investors as they explore the trends underlying this backward momentum and what they mean to investors.
