Risk and reward: tempering the pursuit of profit - 01 June 2010
This report reviews the circumstances leading up to the recent financial crisis.
Corporate governance and the credit crunch - 01 November 2008
Corporate governance and the credit crunch draws on a set of ten corporate governance and risk management principles.
ACCA has over 100 years' experience of working with the SME sector. We lobby governments, regulators and standard setters in the long-term interest of a healthy SME sector, and we support professional accountants so they can continue to function as the sector’s most trusted business advisers and finance managers.
Failings in the areas of risk, reward, governance and ethics played a major part in creating the recent economic crisis. Businesses are under increasing pressure to balance risk and reward, and have recognised risk management, ethical business and good corporate governance as factors that underpin sustainable success.
An important part of ACCA's institutional work is to contribute to the debate on technical issues affecting business and accountancy and to represent the interest of its members in relation to the legislation and professional standards that they have to comply with in their work.
The Global Forum for Governance, Risk and Performance brings together groups of experts from around the world to discuss key issues relating to risk and corporate governance.
