A spotlight on Swiss trends
Deloitte Switzerland is pleased to present a new study on the current corporate governance trends and practices in the Swiss market. As economic conditions remain challenging, the need for robust governance and leadership is crucial, and there is an increasing demand for more transparency and visibility on the actions of the board and its chairman. In addition to a call for more independence at board level, there is also more scrutiny over the board’s oversight of the CEO and executive committee’s implementation of board decisions. Setting appropriate and acceptable levels of remuneration is critical – and 2013 will see a Swiss public vote on the Minder Initiative which could bring more regulation in this area.
