Corporate Governance

Regulating the way in which a business and its owners operate and make decisions is a fundamental part of running and owning a successful business.

It is also a matter of balancing the needs and objectives of owners, managers, customers, investors, lenders and the regulatory environment by developing a set of rules, processes and procedures that directs and influences the way the business behaves and makes decisions.

Getting it right positively influences the internal and external reputation of the business and its culture. It brings with it transparency, accountability and direction which aligns the interests and objectives of everyone involved in the business or who transacts with it.

Careful selection of the right structure and who makes and influences decisions in a business is critical. The composition of a Board, management team, the operational and decision making rules and accountabilities, as well as the ability to manage the exit of non-aligned elements of your business, will underpin value and success.
