About this lecture:
This lecture focuses on the role of the institutional investment industry. Post the global financial crisis of 2008/9, there is general public demand for greater responsibility and accountability on the part of the financial services industry. With respect to the institutional investment industry, they are asked to behave as "stewards" in accordance with the UK Stewardship Code 2010. The lecture argues that “stewardship” is a concept that moves beyond the private nature of investment management and corporate governance, into a role of “governance” generally, infused with concerns for public interest and taking on a social dimension. The lecture will examine the interface between the private legal frameworks of trust and corporate governance and the public interest notions in "stewardship" and argue that "Stewardship" will not meet the needs of the public interest concerns that have given rise to this reform.
