About International Corporate Governance Network - ICGN

An investor-led organisation of governance professionals, ICGN's mission is to inspire and promote effective standards of corporate governance to advance efficient markets and economies world-wide.  We do this through three core activities:

  • Influencing policy by providing a reliable source of practical knowledge and experiences on corporate governance issues, thereby contributing to a sound regulatory framework and a mutual understanding of interests between market participants;
  • Connecting peers and facilitating cross-border communication among a broad constituency of market participants at international conferences and events, virtual networking and through other media; and
  • Informing dialogue amongst corporate governance professionals through the publication of policies and principles, exchange of knowledge and advancement of education world-wide

The ICGN incorporated as a company limited by guarantee under the law of England and Wales in January 2008 and, as such, limits the liability of members to one pound sterling.

Responsible Investing Programme for investors. Built as part of a European Commission backed initiative, this programme has been developed ‘by investors, for investors’. It aims to help you better understand company value through identifying, analysing and integrating sustainability considerations, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) information into the investment process. 

The course is the first of its kind, delivered in-person with your peers and seasoned professionals. It offers an intensive, interactive training experience with six modules over a two-day period and culminates in a case study to put into practice the learning outcomes, together with supplementary reading materials. Core modules include: 

  • Managing your responsibilities as an investment professional
  • Responsible investment analysis and corporate valuation
  • Integrating sustainability considerations into the investment process
  • Strategies of stewardship and engagement
  • Managing proxy voting and the accountability chain
