Key Insights

Good Corporate Governance – Alive and Kicking!

Reading the news day in and day out it’s difficult to believe that the term ‘good corporate governance’ means anything anymore. Good corporate governance seems to be dead and buried. Has it just become a cliché bandied around to look good and ‘tick the boxes’? It seems as if crime, corruption and cronyism pay off big time. The gravy train and anarchy rule!
