Corporate Governance Highlights 2016 is a joint initiative by CPA Australia, NUS Business School’s Centre for Governance, Institutions and Organisations (CGIO), and Singapore Institute of Directors. The report is an annual series published in the last quarter of each year, followed by the release of the Singapore Governance and Transparency Index (SGTI) rankings.
This report sheds light on the outstanding progress and stagnation of Singapore-listed companies (SGX Mainboard and Catalist) in their corporate governance practices and disclosures. The SGTI 2016 includes the 631 actively-trading companies that released their 2015 annual reports by 31 May 2016. This report examines and analyses data from the CGIO databases of the GTI from 2009 to 2015 and the SGTI from 2016.
The enhanced SGTI assessment framework incorporates changes in the Code of Corporate Governance 2012 and adds a new section on stakeholder engagement. The SGTI 2016 study finds that, overall, Singapore-listed companies reached an all-time-high average score of 49.7 points, an increase of 2.1 points over 2015.
