Malaysia: Securities Commission publishes inaugural corporate governance monitor report

The Securities Commission has published its first corporate governance monitor report: see here. The report provides information on a wide range of governance practices among listed companies, including board diversity and adoption of new best practice recommendations in the 2017 edition of the Malaysian Corporate Governance Code. It notes, for example, that among 930 listed issuers, just under 16% of directors were female and a little over 24% of independent board positions have been held by the same director for more than 9 years.
