Corporate Governance Post Financial Crisis
Wednesday, May 25, 2016, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
The offices of William Gallagher Associates, 470 Atlantic Avenue, Boston, MA
The importance of corporate governance was one of the lessons from the financial crisis. This panel will discuss, among other things, the corporate governance shortcomings and resulting challenges from the financial crisis:
Can higher standards of corporate governance be enforced by laws and rules? Let's hear from our panel as to the impact of new regulations and regulations that have not yet taken effect.
Are you in the opinion that banks and financial firms helped with the meltdown? Either way, come and join the discussion about a higher level of risk management understanding for such institutions, and what can be done to improve how they operate post financial crisis.
Better yet- let's share how to best support the implementation of effective corporate governance standards.
