ICC releases preview of corporate governance book
ICC has released a preview of a new book on corporate governance, The Contractual Governance of Private Equity and Hedge Funds.
Slated for release in February 2008, the book addresses the role of corporate governance in non-listed companies, particularly company law restrictions on foreign direct investment; the development of an equity-oriented market and contractual structures of private equity and hedge funds.
Authors Joseph McCahery, Professor of Corporate Governance and Innovation at the University of Amsterdam and Professor of Financial Market Regulation at Tilburg University, and Erik Vermeulen, Professor of Law and Management and Professor of Financial Market Regulation at Tilburg University, contribute insightful views on the issues from a policy perspective.
They aim to improve understanding of the governance problems of non-listed companies and provide a fresh look at how the laws, institutions and other mechanisms can address firm-level conflicts as well as conflicts involving third parties and government actors.
