Minutes of the European Corporate Governance Forum

The European Corporate Governance Forum held its second meeting in Brussels on 20 June 2005 to discuss issues of shareholders’ rights and internal control. On shareholders’ rights the Forum concluded that an appropriate balance has to be found between managerial entrepreneurship and shareholder control. This implies that a broad analysis be carried out on possible key powers of shareholders, the specific effects of large blocks of shareholders in one company and on the limits of the one share one vote concept.

With regard to internal control and risk management there should be a careful examination of what lessons can be learnt and a cost – benefit analysis should be undertaken before any further legislative measures are taken.
