Risk management and corporate governance
Risk management and corporate governance focuses on the interesting challenges that lawmakers, policymakers and companies face relating to the risk management environment. This book presents the results of an analysis and comparison of US, EU and several member states’ regulations relating to the board’s, senior management’s and supervisory board’s or non-executive director’s roles and responsibilities regarding risks, risk management and the disclosure of information thereof from a historical perspective up to the status quo.
The book reveals the mismatch between information demand and supply with regard to the disclosure of information on risks in annual reports and uses empirical analysis and statistical tests supporting this thesis. Aiming to offer guidance, the book establishes that a readily comparable standardised format to disclose information on risks would be useful. It also contains the building stones that such a format should hold.
