Complex and diverse roles performed by non-executive directors in the context of the implementation of the non-regulatory codes of corporate governance: evidence from small and medium firms in the UK

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This study aims to address two interrelated issues. (1) What is

    the role of no‐executive directors (NEDs) of public companies

    listed in the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in the UK?

    (2) Whether AIM listed companies accept the principles and

    provisions of the Combined Code of Corporate Governance

    (CCCG)? And, if so, to what extent?

    The findings indicate that the nature of task of NEDs of AMI

    listed firms is characterised by multiplicity of tasks and task

    variation by the type of chair. This study contributes to fill the

    knowledge gap in the literature with regard to the role of

    NEDs of SMEs in general and AIM listed companies in the UK

    in particular.
