CORPORATE
GOVERNANCE



Corporate governance is a term that refers broadly to the rules, processes, or laws by
which businesses are operated, regulated, and controlled. The term can refer to
internal factors defined by the officers, stockholders or constitution of a corporation, as
well as to external forces such as consumer groups, clients, and government
regulations.



The framework of rules and practices by which a board of directors ensures
accountability, fairness, and transparency in a company's relationship with its all
stakeholders (financiers, customers, management, employees, government, and the
community).



Corporate Governance deals with the manner the providers of finance guarantee
themselves of getting a fair return on their investment. Corporate Governance clearly
distinguishes between the owners and the managers. The managers are the deciding
authority. In modern corporations, the functions/ tasks of owners and managers should
be clearly defined, rather harmonizing.



Corporate Governance deals with determining ways to take effective strategic
decisions. It gives ultimate authority and complete responsibility to the Board of
Directors. In today’s market- oriented economy, the need for corporate governance
arises. Also, efficiency as well as globalization are significant factors urging corporate
governance. Corporate Governance is essential to develop added value to the
stakeholders

aspects. Corporate Governance encourages a trustworthy, moral, as well as ethical

Effective corporate governance is also of interest to nations. As stated
by one scholar, “Every country wants the firms that operate within its
borders to flourish and grow in such ways as to provide
employment, wealth, and satisfaction, not only to improve standards of
living materially but also to enhance social cohesion.
Four internal governance mechanisms and a single external one are
used in the modern corporation. The three internal governance
mechanisms examined here are ;

Ownership concentration, as represented by types of shareholders
