Summary
The year 2015 is referred to as the first year of real corporate governance (Kigyo-tochi gan-nen). However, Abenomics is not only a policy package that lead to major changes in corporate governance. What is new in Abenomics is that the governance reform clearly aims at promoting corporate growth. Then natural questions are: Has the governance reforms as a growth strategy been successful? How much extent do they change governance arrangement among Japanese firms? Do they really influence the conservative behaviors of Japanese firms, and therefore contribute to improve their corporate performance? This presentation addresses these questions, focusing on the two pillars of the reform, (1) Japanese-version Stewardship Code (JSC) that encourages the engagement of institutional investors in the business management and (2) the corporate governance code (CGC) that encourages firms to appoint independent directors and dissolve the cross-shareholding.
