Good Governance

Underpinning the activities above is, of course, the need for good governance.

For AIM-quoted companies there are specific requirements under the UK Governance Code (formerly known as the Combined Code).

It sets out specific guidance on board composition and development, remuneration, shareholder relations, accountability and audit. This needs to be communicated accurately on your website investor section and in your annual report.

For all companies (AIM or private) there are useful good governance practices that we deliver:

  • Establishing structured, regular board meetings (board packs, agenda, notices and minuting of meeting)
  • Finance Director board representation
  • Creation and management of a risk register
  • Defining and managing the Treasury policy
  • Stakeholder communications
  • Operating to any shareholder agreement (for private companies)
