New Corporate Governance Code is Now Live

The recently updated UK Corporate Governance Code (the ‘Code’)  is now live and covers financial years commencing on or after 1 January 2019. The new Code replaces the version of the Code issued in April 2016 and applies to Irish-incorporated companies listed on the Main Securities Market of Euronext Dublin (formerly the ISE), as well as Irish companies with a  premium listing on the London Stock Exchange. Many unlisted companies and funds also use the Code as a benchmark for good corporate governance.

William Fry has partnered with the Institute of Directors to create a briefing document on the new Code which can be viewed here.
