Corporate Governance 

Discover the biggest challenges that senior executives face today

Corporate governance is a complex challenge for senior executives, with so many competing priorities. We interviewed our resident corporate governance specialist, Mark Nuttall, the Risk Solutions Director for Thomson Reuters in APAC and MENA, about some of the biggest challenges that senior executives face today, such as Ultimate Beneficial Ownership, internal risk, ESG risk factors and why due diligence is more important than ever.

Part 1

Ultimate Beneficial Ownership (UBO) 

UBO: growing regulatory focus

Corporate Governance Video Series Part 1: Ultimate Beneficial Ownership (UBO)

The issue of Ultimate Beneficial Ownership (UBO) has become a complex challenge for compliance executives, and due to regulatory pressure, it is a difficult challenge to avoid. In this video, corporate governance specialist Mark Nuttall discusses how to manage heightened risk and complexity associated with UBO. 

Part 2

Mitigating Risk within an Organization

How to recognise and resolve internal risk

Corporate Governance Video Series Part 2: Mitigating Risk within an Organization

Internal risk is often not recognised or understood, exposing the organisation to the threat of failure. This is understandable given that risk is rarely a core competency, but it exposes organisations to unnecessary vulnerability. In this interview, our resident corporate governance specialist, Mark Nuttall, explains the value of a risk framework. 

Part 3

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) 

The growing importance of ESG in compliance

Corporate Governance Video Series Part 3: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk covers a broad spectrum of issues. Over the past few years, public sentiment has kept ESG in the headlines, with the topic now filtering into the regulatory discourse. Reputational risk has been an issue for some time, but the threat of fines and censure represents heightened risk. In this interview our resident corporate governance specialist, Mark Nuttall, discusses the impact of ESG on compliance.  

Part 4

Managing Commercial Relationships 

Why detailed due diligence is now essential

Corporate Governance Video Series Part 4: Managing Commercial Relationships

Increasing regulatory pressure has made detailed and accurate due diligence reporting a critical requirement. While a risk-based approach still applies, there is increasing pressure on compliance departments to increase the transparency and application of their due diligence reporting and to know more about their business relationships than before. According to our resident corporate governance specialist, Mark Nuttall, understanding their risk tolerance has become a critical task.
