As a leading corporate governance organization, CCGG represents the interests of institutional investors, including pension funds, mutual funds and asset managers. By joining CCGG, IMCO is supporting direct engagement with Canadian public companies and the public policy submissions, guidance and research produced by the organization.
“Strong corporate governance is a fundamental part of our values and investment beliefs,” said Bert Clark, President and CEO of IMCO. “We are proud to be a CCGG member and look forward to working with our peers to act as role models and promote the highest standards of governance within Canada.”
