1. Regulatory Context Since 2008

• During the twenty year period of almost unparalleled
economic growth which preceded 2008, hundreds of
millions of people around the globe were lifted out of
absolute poverty.
• However, many average earners were weighed down by a
debt burden which had grown disproportionately relative
to both overall economic growth and median incomes in
many Western countries. Debts started to sour and as this
happened, confidence failed and, as confidence failed,
markets failed.

1. Regulatory Context Since 2008

• Over the past few years the Basel Committee has
produced not just the Basel III capital rules for banks, but
also, in September 2012, the heavily revised Core
Principles for Effective Banking Supervision. The
International Organization of Securities Commissions
produced its revised Objectives and Principles of
Securities Regulation in September 2011 while the
International Association of Insurance Supervisors
produced the revised insurance core principles one month
later. Not to be left out, the Financial Action Task Force
produced its revised International Standards on
Combating Money Laundering and the Financing of
Terrorism & Proliferation in February 2012.

1. Governing and Governance

OECD Principles of Corporate Governance:
• Ensuring the Basis for an Effective Corporate Governance
Framework - The corporate governance framework should
promote transparent and efficient markets, be consistent with
the rule of law and clearly articulate the division of
responsibilities among different supervisory, regulatory and
enforcement authorities.
• The Rights of Shareholders and Key Ownership Functions -
The corporate governance framework should protect and
facilitate the exercise of shareholders’ rights.
• The Equitable Treatment of Shareholders - The corporate
governance framework should ensure the equitable treatment
of all shareholders, including minority and foreign shareholders.
All shareholders should have the opportunity to obtain effective
redress for violation of their rights.

1. Governing and Governance

OECD Principles of Corporate Governance (cont.):
• The Role of Stakeholders in Corporate Governance - The
corporate governance framework should recognize the rights of
stakeholders established by law or through mutual agreements
and encourage active co-operation between corporations and
stakeholders in creating wealth, jobs, and the sustainability of
financially sound enterprises.
• Disclosure and Transparency - The corporate governance
framework should ensure that timely and accurate disclosure is
made on all material matters regarding the corporation,
including the financial situation, performance, ownership, and
governance of the company.
• The Responsibilities of the Board - The corporate governance
framework should ensure the strategic guidance of the
company, the effective monitoring of management by the
board, and the board’s accountability to the company and the

1. Governing and Governance

• Historically, corporate governance has been about codes of
practice. Enforcement has been that of persuasion, or requiring
“comply or explain” approaches to disclosure of compliance.
One clear trend is that governance requirements are being
incorporated in legislation and regulation, particularly for
financial firms.
• Responding to scandals and failures in finance, there have
been a number of USA initiatives. Most notable is the
Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, informally referred to as Sarbox
or Sox, an attempt by the federal government in the United
States to legislate several of the principles recommended in the
UK and OECD reports in the wake of a host of auditing failures
during the dot.bomb boom and Enron scandal.
• Reacting to the financial crises since 2007, the Dodd-Frank
Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed in
2010, bringing in a host of regulations for financial firms.
