Event Summary

The Centre of Governance, Institutions and Organisations (CGIO) of NUS Business School, together with CPA Australia (CPAA) and Singapore Institute of Directors (SID) launched the Singapore Governance and Transparency Index (SGTI) ranking results and key research findings on 7 August 2019. The event was held at SGX auditorium for the first time and we were very encouraged by the enthusiastic response and attendance.

Prof Lawrence Loh, CGIO’s Director presented the SGTI CG trends and key highlights. The presentation was followed by an insightful panel discussion comprising industry leaders on the SGTI findings. Key takeaways of the presentation included:

  1. SGTI 2019 reached all-time high scores of 59.3 (General Category) and 78.6 (REITs and Business Trusts).
  2. Engagement of stakeholders notably rose to a score of 53% from last year’s 38%. More companies adopted sustainable policies and practices.
  3. However, there are areas of concerns.
  • Only a quarter (25%) had a chairman as an ID.
  • Only 39% had IDs as the majority on their boards when their chairman is non-ID.

The eventful SGTI forum attracted an extensive media coverage from The Business Times, Channel News Asia, and The Straits Times amongst other media reports.
