In the world’s current unprecedented economic state, organisations face increased challenges to manage risks and comply with laws, regulations and internal policies, and to do so cost effectively whilst generating stable and sustainable returns for their shareholders and to society at large.

Regulators have identified corporate governance as a key driver in delivering outcomes and as a good indicator of a firm’s culture of compliance and accountability. Culture and ethics are firmly in the regulatory, media and political spotlight and are likely to remain there.

At Sandgate we are a trusted advisor to some of the world’s leading organisations where we have helped them attract, engage and retain some of the very best Company Secretaries and corporate governance professionals.
