Paper instructions : Delta View Asset Management (DVAM) is a successful London-based company with a vast asset portfolio which has seen the business grow from a small family-owned firm into a company listed in the FTSE 100. For many years, DVAM has received negative press concerning significant failings in its corporate governance structures. In the first half of the year DVAM received several adverse comments from some of its large institutional investors about its excessive directors’ remuneration packages, which were not in line with actual performance. Furthermore, DVAM employee representatives also raised concerns vis a vis significant failing by management and the lack of help offered by the company to its employees in enabling them to understand and respond to socio-environmental challenges or demonstrate a company-wide commitment to corporate social responsibility.
In terms of its corporate governance structure, DVAM lacks many of the key features expected from a firm of its size and prominence. Mr. Schooner the Chairman and the CEO is solely in charge of recruitment and selection of top DVAM executives. The board of directors lacks diversity and there are concerns from shareholders that some of the directors do not possess requisite skill and expertise in finance and asset management. In addition, the board sub-committees are comprised solely of executive directors.
In the last Annual General Meeting (AGM), the shareholders called on the chairman/CEO and the board of directors to consider including independent and non-independent directors on the board and sub-committees, particularly the nomination, remuneration and audit committees. The shareholders argued that there were significant implications for disregarding corporate governance structures and practices and called for openness, accountability, and transparency of the activities of the board of directors and sub-committees.
In light of the issues raised by DVAM shareholders and employees, the board decided to take action. The board agreed that a Corporate Governance Compliance Officer was urgently required to address the concerns raised and to devise an effective corporate governance strategy for DVAM’s future. You were recently appointed to this role.
Instructions:
You were instructed by the board to carry out an initial assessment of the situation at DVAM. Your initial assessment shows significant corporate governance failings at many levels of the organisation, which you intend to set out in your final report to the board of directors. The board of directors is keen for you to draw up a Corporate Governance Action Plan which will form the basis of a new Corporate Governance Policy and Procedure for the organisation. The Action Plan MUST clearly reflect DVAM’s new commitment to effective Corporate Governance and should seek to enact measures to comply with the UK Corporate Governance framework. Your Action Plan should clearly state:
The business wide corporate governance failings you have identified in your initial assessment.
The policies, controls, and procedures to mitigate and effectively manage the failings identified.
Any national and international corporate governance guidelines, principles and legislations, required in putting forward a comprehensive governance policy and procedure.
Be sure to adopt a critical perspective when discussing issues in light of the corporate governance failings identified, policies and procedures proposed to mitigate and manage the risks and support your reasoning and arguments with apt academic sources.
