United Kingdom 2015 Market IQ


Institutional Shareholder Services annually undertakes a detailed review and analysis of the structure and composition of markets across the globe in the yearly Market IQ documents. The background document examines the history and structure of the market from a governance perspective, including regulatory regimes, voting hurdles and procedures, compensation practices and shareholder ability to opine, dissident rights, investor organizations, history, and much more. In 2015, the United Kingdom will operate under an updated UK Corporate Governance Code, and heightened attention will be paid to the representation of women on the boards of FTSE 350 companies. Given the publication of European level audit regulation and additional UK regulations, companies can expect closer inspection of their audit rotation arrangements. Remuneration remains very high profile, particularly as 2015 will only be the second year since the binding vote on the remuneration policy was introduced.
