Corporate Governance Guidelines for Listed Companies, 2010

Philippines Current 2010

The Corporate Governance Guidelines for Companies Listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) was issued in 2010. A Guidelines Handbook was developed by PSE based on a review of internationally recognized corporate governance codes and considering the dynamics of the Philippine market. It is also designed for benchmarking corporate governance practices and guiding companies in improving their respective standards and practices in corporate governance. The Guidelines Handbook is composed of ten (10) main guidelines, with specific best practice recommendations under each guideline. The PSE conducts an annual Corporate Governance Guidelines Disclosure Survey that is used to inform investors as well as a screening for the annual PSE Bell Awards for Corporate Governance.
