Governance in Argentina

This event was held in English

This event is part of the Governance around the world series of events. This series aims to equip investors and multi-national organizations with an understanding of national approaches to governance and prevailing imperatives.

Trends in governance in Argentina have shown a steady evolution towards following the international standards.

This webinar evaluates that path and compares the progress of the corporate governance for listed companies and private companies with other Latin American countries.

The evolution of the capital market helped the expansion of the Corporate Governance among corporations helping financing projects.

The gap between the listed and private companies continues to be important and we will evaluate it and the road towards its inclusion.

The main topics in Argentina are focusing on the following essential aspects:

  • Protection of minority shareholders
  • Shareholder dialogue and the protection of shareholders’ rights
  • Accountability of Board members and management bodies, particularly with regard to the determination of their remuneration, diversity, gender
  • Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues
