Independent Directors in Australia: A Changing landscape?


Williams, B and Bingham, S and Shimeld, S, Independent Directors in Australia: A Changing landscape?, Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, Australia (2014) [Report of Restricted Access]


This research project ascertained whether there has been a discernible change in characteristics of independent non-executive directors (INEDs) and their roles on corporate boards since 2005 in response to the impact of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2007/8. A number of significant changes were found including the quantity and role of INED appointments and the nature of disclosures across time with the results from this study supporting the notion that corporations are attempting to restore their accountability relationships through more transparent mechanisms of governance.
