FRC event on corporate governance principles for large private companies

  • FRC Image

10 Apr 2018

The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) will host an event on corporate governance principles for large private companies in Edinburgh on 29 May 2018.

In 2017, the Government announced its intention to introduce a new corporate governance reporting requirement for large private companies. To complement this new reporting requirement, the Government appointed James Wates CBE, Chairman of the Wates Group Ltd, to lead a coalition of partners, including the Financial Reporting Council, to develop corporate governance principles to enhance transparency and accountability in large private companies, and improve public trust in business.

This event will involve introductory comments from James Wates as to his vision for the principles, insight from a leading academic, and a panel discussion featuring local company and investor representatives to discuss the role of corporate governance in large private companies and the impact of the new reporting requirement. There will also be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions about the development of the principles.

This event will be of interest to large private companies, investors, academics, as well as auditors and advisors involved in corporate reporting.

Further details and how to register for the event are available on the FRC website.  A similar event co-hosted by Aston Business School will be held in Birmingham on 30 May 2018.  Registration details for that event are available on the FRC website here.
