European researchers in corporate governance met in Milan to open debate with Italian business leaders on mutating trends in corporate governance.
Pierre-Yves Gomez outlined French Corporate Governce Institute research into the changing patterns of French corporate governance system, covering the three core changes in French business governance patterns: the key role of off-shore funds in business equity, the increase in individual shareholders, and the withdrawal of French government shareholding.
Pierre-Yves Gomez also detailed the legal and institutional forms shaping corporate governance in France.
The event, which was organized by Bocconi University, drew together members of the European Corporate Governance Group (founded by the IFGE). Europe’s top experts tackled Italian business leaders on current and expected developments in corporate governance.
