(Fully booked) BDO Webinar: Roles and responsibilities of INEDs

Date: 17 June 2021
Time: 16:00 - 17:30


  • Summary

Nowadays, independent non-executive directors (INEDs) of listed companies are playing more important roles in the companies from corporate governance perspectives and they are facing more stringent responsibilities and liabilities. Regulators are now more prepared to go after INEDs when things go wrong with listed companies.

After joining this webinar, participants will gain knowledge about:

  • The fundamental principles governing the roles and responsibilities of INEDs under the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622 of the laws of Hong Kong), the Listing Rules and the Corporate Governance Code
  • The evolving roles and responsibilities of INEDs in light of the changing regulatory requirements
  • Real-life cases of regulatory actions taken by the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (SEHK) and the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) against INEDs
