Creating Value through Governance – The Cases of State & Family Owned Enterprises
9th Corporate Governance Conference
11 November 2015, Conrad Hotel, Dubai - UAE
It is widely recognised that good governance enhances the performance of companies by helping them make sound decisions and, in particular, to manage potentially damaging risks. While best practice has been elaborated at international level, it is harder to adapt this to groups, especially those where there is a controlling family or state shareholder.
The subsidiaries of such groups face a particular challenge which is frequently faced by regional companies. They need the independence and entrepreneurial freedom to generate value for their shareholders. Yet they must also remain accountable to the controlling state or family interest. The conference will explore how both sides can best respond.
