A review of corporate governance disclosure in New Zealand

160804 Review of corporate governance disclosure
Institutional investors have told us that they rely on good corporate governance disclosures to help them make informed investment decisions. Our review of a sample of New Zealand listed and unlisted companies shows that although many companies provide clear and relevant information, they could improve corporate governance policies, practices and disclosures. We encourage companies to learn from the examples of good reporting that we have highlighted, paying particular attention to disclosures on shareholder relations and stakeholder interests.
