About this book


Corporate accountability must be examined within the perspective of a company's business challenges. There is a synergy between shareholder value and the responsibilities of management. This book is based on an extensive research project done by the author in the 2001 to 2003 timeframe in the United States, England, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland. It includes a great deal of case studies in corporate accountability and governance, particularly among financial institutions. Significant attention is also paid to good governance of pension funds.
