Corporate Governance and Reporting

Corporate governance is central to the strength and health of our global economy.

EY’s UK Corporate Governance team provides guidance and thought leadership on governance issues to help our clients, and to contribute to wider discussions on good governance, based on our research and engagement with investors, boards and regulators.

Corporate governance is the system by which companies are directed and controlled, and is never far from the spotlight, particularly in the UK’s present political landscape. We are actively engaged in shaping dialogue on corporate governance in the UK, as increasingly rapid change to the world and business environment will mean future shifts in the practice and regulation of governance.
