OECD Corporate Governance Factbook 2019 Published

The OECD Corporate Governance Factbook 2019 has just been published. It provides up-to-date information about the institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks for corporate governance across 49 jurisdictions worldwide that includes all 36 OECD countries as well as Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Hong Kong (China), India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and South Africa. The Factbook is intended to complement the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance (2015) and can be used by governments, regulators and the private sector to compare their own frameworks with those of other countries and also to get information on practices in specific jurisdictions.

 The Factbook is divided into five main areas that are crucial for understanding how corporate governance functions in different jurisdictions:

  • the corporate and market landscape
  • the corporate governance and institutional framework
  • the rights and equitable treatment of shareholders and key ownership functions
  • the corporate board of directors
  • mechanisms for flexibility and proportionality in corporate governance
