Effective corporate governance requires an integrated view of the ‘governance cycle’, comprising shareholder participation, board composition, managerial compensation, and value reporting. In the most recent SFI White Paper, Corporate Governance: Beyond Best Practice, Professor Alexander Wagner (Swiss Finance Institute & University of Zurich), and Dr. Christoph Wenk Bernasconi (University of Zurich) provide such a framework. Building on an analysis of the state of Swiss corporate governance, they outline possible future developments and propose ideas regarding action points for the next Annual General Meeting (AGM) season and for the ongoing revision of the Swiss Code of Obligations.
