ACCT7950 Investment Governance (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
The word "governance" is increasingly recognized and written about in modern times. Global governance is a question that exercises the minds of national governments when attending multilateral meetings on subjects ranging from trade to climate change. Effective corporate governance is what boards of directors attempt to provide for the corporations they represent and is the standard to which investors and activists increasingly hold them. In this course, we focus our attention on the rapidly growing field of investment governance. Investment governance refers to the effective use of resources—people, policies, processes, and systems—by a governing agent seeking to fulfil a fiduciary duty to the principals (the beneficiaries) in addressing an underlying investment challenge as an enabler of good stewardship. For this reason it should, in our view, be of interest to all fiduciaries, no matter the size of the pool of assets or the nature of the beneficiaries. The purpose of this course is thus to share with the key players in investment governance (fiduciaries, compliance officers, asset managers and investment managers) the strategies that may help fulfil the duties to their beneficiaries and stakeholders.
