Governance Matters podcast: How entity management can keep your corporate structure efficient and safe

New research reveals how companies are approaching entity management, including budgets and the use of outside advisers and technology

The latest episode of the Governance Matters podcast looks at new Governance Intelligence research that provides actionable insights for legal and compliance experts on entity management practices and trends at companies around the world.

The research finds that – despite economic uncertainty – more companies than not are putting additional money, human resources and technology into their entity management programs. The report also highlights the extent to which companies are seeking outside help with their entity management work and indicates that a number of boards are talking about the subject more frequently.

In this episode, Kariem Abdellatif, head of Mercator by Citco, explains what’s behind these trends and shares real-life examples of entity portfolio management in action, highlighting advice for governance professionals and their boards.

Effective entity management programs help companies make sure their business network has an efficient structure in which all components adhere to local laws and regulations. They can also provide valuable support for M&A and help minimize entity costs while ensuring consistent governance.

Ever-changing regulatory regimes, new technologies and increasing scrutiny from investors and other stakeholders mean there are both pressures and opportunities to evolve and improve companies’ entity portfolio management.
