Corporate Structure and Governance of Export Credit Agencies: A UKEF Overview
Languages of publication
Export Credit Agencies have been playing an increasing role in promoting international trade and foreign investment. These agencies differ in their ownership structure and in their governance. Similarly, the importance of applying proper corporate governance has been increasing rapidly. Profit and non-profit institutions are being under pressure to protect shareholders’ interest and employees’ rights and to act in a responsible manner without being all about blind-folded profit maximization. For that, this paper thoroughly examines the ownership structure and governance of the UK Export Finance (UKEF) and how it adheres by corporate governance rules. The paper, through analyzing primary and secondary data, aims to emphasize that there is room for improvement in the current corporate governance model followed by the UKEF.
