We offer a broad range of services that will meet your organization’s corporate governance needs including,

Corporate Governance Review

We undertake a corporate governance review of your organization to assess its current corporate governance, benchmarked against relevant best practice. We will produce a confidential report, generally for the Chairman or CEO, identifying areas for improvement. We believe this is an invaluable exercise, particularly for banks and any organisation that believes it appropriate to adopt international best practice.

ESCA & 518 Review

We undertake a review of your Company’s response to the ESCA Corporate Governance Code. This can be of particular relevance in preparation for the annual Corporate Governance Report. We will identify any omissions and areas of underperformance, recommend remedial steps, implement the solution and work with you to ensure that the Corporate Governance Report is an ambassador of the company.
