DISCUSSION Stewardship Asia Roundtable and Forum 2015: Building on Asia’s Strength

by Yolanda Villafuerte _______23rd June 2015

Mark Goyder, founder and CEO of Tomorrow’s Company, has been invited to Singapore to participate in the roundtable on 24th June 2015, and lead a discussion in the forum on the subject ‘Stewardship at Work – Experience and Practices’, chairing a panel which includes business leaders and investors from China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Vietnam. Tomorrow’s Company has been one of Stewardship Asia’s Strategic Partners. Mark Goyder is co-author with Ong Boon Hwee in a series of articles in Singapore’s Business Times (read here: 1, 2, 3). In October Mark will also be delivering a keynote speech at the annual conference of the Securities Investors’ Association in Singapore.

Tomorrow’s Company’s work on investor stewardship and capital markets has stimulated wide interest, through the creation of the UN Principles of Responsible Investment and the UK’s Stewardship Code and more recently through our fresh approach to board nominations.
