Welcome to

WATCH:  Jacob Wallenberg (Chairman, Investor AB) and Carl-Henric Svanberg (Chairman, BP plc and Volvo AB) speak about the importance of Corporate Governance, the impact of academic research and the rationale for founding the European Corporate Governance Research Foundation (ECGRF).


Learn about some of the research initiatives that have already been supported by ECGRF, bringing value to a broad international audience of scholars, corporations, investors and authorities with maximum impact.

“Why Are Fewer Companies Going Public?”

ECGRF supported this Roundtable focused on the reasons and implications of fewer companies going public. The steep decline in initial public offerings in the U.S. has raised concerns about reduced opportunities for the general public to save for the future.

Differential Voting Shares

ECGRF supported this conference jointly organized by the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI) and the Raymond Ackerman Family Chair in Israeli Corporate Governance, Bar-Ilan University.

Shareholder Ideology and Stewardship

This ECGI Roundtable was supported by ECGRF and was hosted by Hermes Investment Management on 25 October 2018. The Roundtable focused on the nature of governance interventions by institutional shareholders. 

Loyalty Shares

ECGRF supported the Roundtable focused on loyalty shares as a legal solution for encouraging long-term ownership, a concept that is promoted by policy makers, including the European Commission, some institutional investors and issuers. This event was by invitation only. Institutional and Patron members were invited.
