The UKCG Code of the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) sets out standards of good practice in relation to leadership and effectiveness of the board of directors, remuneration, accountability, transparency and relations with shareholders. See Practice Note: The UK Corporate Governance Code for a general overview of the UKCG Code.
The FRC also administers the Stewardship Code, a code for institutional investors, which supplements the UKCG Code and aims to enhance the quality of engagement between institutional investors and the companies in which they invest. See Practice Note: The UK Stewardship Code for a general overview.
