Corporate governance (CG) centres on executive compensation, board composition and the increased scrutiny surrounding auditors. Other issues include corruption, fraud and maladministration. CG considers all the stakeholders and embraces policies, processes, procedures, and principles (or codes) that govern and balance the ways in which an organisation is directed, administered and controlled.
