OECD publishes new edition of its Corporate Governance Factbook

The OECD has today published the 2017 edition of its Corporate Governance Factbook: see here (pdf). The factbook covers 47 jurisdictions and provides information in four areas: (1) the corporate landscape (including the ownership structure of listed companies); (2) the corporate governance framework; (3) the rights of shareholders and key ownership functions; and (4) the board of directors.

The Factbook contains much of interest including the extent to which the 'comply or explain' approach has been adopted internationally as well as the increasing significance of jurisdictions with concentrated forms of ownership.
