Board Guide


View Contents (38KB)


How does a Board fulfil its dual role of performance (ensuring long-term value creation) and conformance (ensuring compliance with laws, regulations, rules and codes)?

What are the roles of the Board vis-à-vis management when developing and implementing corporate strategy?

How should the Board engage shareholder activists, proxy advisers and the media, if at all?

The answers to these questions, and more, are found in the Board Guide, the definitive guide to the roles, duties, challenges and leading practices of Boards.

Aimed especially at Singapore-listed companies, the Board Guide provides comprehensive coverage of the regulatory and practical aspects of corporate governance. Its contents include:

  • An overview of Singapore’s corporate governance regime.

  • The structure and composition of the Board.

  • The organisation and conduct of Board meetings.

  • The Board’s duties and oversight over the various aspects of the business.

  • The duties, liabilities and rewards of directorship.

  • The Board’s relationships with internal stakeholders.

  • The Board’s engagement with shareholders and other stakeholders.

  • A summary of disclosure requirements for listed companies.

The Board Guide has been produced with the support of PwC, and a review panel of leading practitioners and professionals in the corporate governance field. It is part of a series of Corporate Governance Guides that covers Boards and Board Committees. It is produced by the Singapore Institute of Directors with the support of the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, and the Singapore Exchange Limited.
