2021-Directors' Dialogue Series 3rd Edition - Financial Services & Insurance Sector

Concept Note:
The Covid-19 pandemic began as a health crisis and quickly developed into a financial one, as all economic activity came to a sudden halt for a few months. It has been a wakeup call for all us to take proactive steps to remain financially protected and secure in the face of unforeseen exigencies. The Hon’ble Union Cabinet Minister for Finance, Mrs. Nirmala Sitharaman announced an increase in the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) limit in insurance from 49% to 74%. She also proposed to amend the Insurance Act, 1938 and launch a new ‘Investor Charter’ for investor protection in her Union Budget (2020-2021) speech on February 01, 2021. This move is poised to increase capital flow into the sector significantly, and positively impact the Indian economy as a whole. | Wednesday | March 10, 2021

2021-Golden Peacock Awards Ceremony (Virtual)

Today, Boards are also expected especially to focus on improving their effectiveness - not just mere compliance, but also Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance for long term sustainability and making it investor friendly. Boards require frameworks for optimizing board engagement and performance to also enhance contribution of individual board members to meet greater transparency and sever accountability. Over the years, the idea of independent corporate boards has taken strong roots in Corporate Governance despite the misgivings and controversies surrounding the concept. Corporate Governance has now become more central and Sustainability has redefined itself in the Covid-19 era.

Thus, Corporate Governance and Sustainability are most inevitable topics of discussion in corporate boardrooms worldwide and only, well governed & sustainable organisations will be poised to thrive Post-pandemic. Skilling, Re-skilling and Up-skilling will be vital for the future.

When India sets an another momentum, we are set to host yet another star-studded virtual Awards Ceremony on Wed, Feb 10, 2021, to felicitate the GLOBAL & NATIONAL WINNERS of Golden Peacock Award for Excellence in Corporate Governance and Sustainability for the year 2020.

Venue: 13 - 16 November, 2019, London (UK)

Many directors and boards struggle to understand the multiple and inter-related challenges, opportunities, possibilities, developments, trends and unexpected events of our contemporary world. Do we have unrealistic expectations of what can be achieved by a relatively small group of very similar people selected in a previous era and who may meet for a relatively short time once a month or quarterly to consider agenda items set out in an annual calendar of meetings and topics of which they often have limited knowledge and experience? Can such a small group presiding over a large enterprise cope with challenges such as indexation, private equity and globalisation (Coates, 2018)? What about climate change and sustainability? This theme paper poses a series of questions to support thinking and discussion ahead of the 2019 London Global Convention on Corporate Governance and Sustainability.

IOD organised 13th International Conference on CSR 2019 | Telecast by Republic TV

Is CSR going under the radar and not discussed more in boardrooms because qualifying Indian companies feel obliged to do it, and a responsible executive provides assurances that Companies Act requirements are complied with? Can CSR influence the extent to which a company is socially responsible and/or has an ethical corporate identity (Balmer et al, 2007)? Looking at the words corporate, social and responsibility, there are many questions that a director could ask. Responses obtained might be very revealing of the attitudes, perspectives and priorities of colleagues around the boardroom table and how they see their roles, accountabilities and responsibilities.

Theme: "Integrating CSR Mandate into Corporate Strategy"
