The Latin American Corporate Governance Roundtable was established in April 2000. Roundtable participants include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Italy, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Spain and additional OECD countries.

The Roundtable works to facilitate public and private sector policy dialogue by providing:

  • a forum for the exchange of experiences between senior policy makers, regulators and market participants

  • policy advice and practical input to the Roundtable's work and to promote good corporate governance practices at the company level through the Companies Circle group



In 2017, the Roundtable established a Task Force on Latin American Equity Market Development to review the state of Latin American equity markets and their corporate governance standards. An Issues note on Equity Market Development in Latin America provides an initial stock-taking of the state of equity market development in the region and some of the initiatives that have been taken in support of this objective.

The Task Force provides regulators, policy makers and relevant stakeholders interested in promoting equity market development in the region to build a common understanding of current impediments to market development and avenues of further research to underpin improvements that could boost their development in the future.

The Task Force builds on the work of previous Task Florces on Corporate Governance of Company Groups (2014) and on Related Party Transactions (2012-2013).
