Why governance, regulatory & compliance matters

Governance, regulatory and compliance continues to be a complex business challenge. As new laws and regulations are introduced, their requirements challenge boards to greater levels of transparency, objectivity and professionalism.
 
Increased accountability and potential exposure to liability means directors need to ensure that corporate governance standards are adhered to and robust compliance management systems are in place.
 
There is a strong business case for corporate governance and regulatory compliance. Sound corporate governance practices can protect directors from potential personal liability and protect the company from reputational harm.
 
There are financial penalties for non-compliance with certain laws and regulations. Robust regulatory and compliance structures can help to ensure companies are not subject to potential penalties.
