Bell Gully releases guide to the NZX corporate governance code

Monday 24 July 2017

Authors: James Cooney, Amon Nunns and James Gibson

​The NZX published the NZX Code in May 2017 following a year-and-a-half long review process.

The NZX Code sets out corporate governance reporting requirements for issuers. It will replace the existing “Best Practice Code” in the Listing Rules from 1 October 2017.

Bell Gully has prepared a practical guide to assist company secretaries to implement the NZX Code together with a checklist.
