A meeting of the Italian Corporate Governance Committee was held earlier this month: see here or here (pdf). The Committee considered the results of the first monitoring exercise of compliance with the Assogestioni Stewardship Code as well as the updated Corporate Governance Code, and decided that the latter did not require updating in 2016/17. Several topics were, however, identified for investigation: SMEs’ corporate governance; enhancing the board of directors’ role; the procedures for the appointment of directors; and relations with shareholders. Note: A copy of the Stewardship Code monitoring report, in Italian, is available here (pdf). A copy of the Governance Code monitoring report, in English, is available here (pdf).
