New Zealand: FMA consults on updated (and refocused) Corporate Governance Handbook

The Financial Markets Authority has published for consultation an updated edition of its Corporate Governance Handbook: see here (pdf). The consultation follows the publication earlier this year by the NZX of an updated edition of its corporate governance code (herepdf). The FMA regards the NZX Code as providing the primary guidance on governance practices for NZX listed companies; the focus of the FMA Handbook has therefore moved away from listed companies and is intended instead to provide practical guidance for directors of non-listed companies including state owned enterprises and public sector entities.
