A key policy objective of corporate governance is to make sure that the financial sector can serve the needs of the real economy; that savings are available and effectively channeled to corporations that need capital for innovation, job creation and growth. Corporate governance is therefore an integral part of any policy for economic development and social progress. Today, however, the relevance of existing approaches to corporate governance are challenged by fundamental developments in financial markets and corporate practices. These changes include an increase in financial intermediation, the appearance of new instruments like exchange traded funds, larger private pools of capital, shifts in global wealth and a growing importance of human capital and intangible assets in individual firms.
