The OECD Corporate Governance Factbook provides an easily accessible and up-to-date, factual underpinning for understanding countries’ institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks, and to support their implementation of good corporate governance practices. It serves as a resource for governments who want to compare their own framework with that of other countries or seek information about practices in specific jurisdictions.


The Factbook compiles information gathered from OECD and non-OECD country delegates to the OECD Corporate Governance Committee as part of a series of thematic reviews issued by the OECD. The thematic reviews cover major corporate governance challenges that came into focus following the 2008 crisis: board practices (including remuneration); institutional investors; related party transactions; board member nomination and election; supervision and enforcement; and risk management.


Published for the first time in 2014 and updated at regular intervals, the information in this second edition is updated as of end-2014. It provided background during the update of the G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance.



All OECD countries as well as Argentina; Brazil; Hong Kong, China; India; Indonesia; Lithuania; Saudi Arabia; and, Singapore.
