New edition of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance published

A revised edition of the OECD's Principles of Corporate Governance - now styled the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance - has been published: see here. The Principles are contained in six chapters, one of which - "Institutional investors, stock markets and other intermediaries" - is new. The emphasis in this new chapter is on disclosure. The first principle states, for example, that institutional investors acting in a fiduciary capacity should disclose their corporate governance and voting policies with respect to their investments, including the procedures that they have in place for deciding on the use of their voting rights.
