The Asian Corporate Governance Association (ACGA) is an independent, non-profit membership organisation dedicated to working with investors, companies and regulators in the implementation of effective corporate governance practices throughout Asia. ACGA was founded in 1999 from a belief that sound and improving corporate governance is fundamental to the long-term development of Asian economies and capital markets.
In 2012, ACGA welcomed Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM) of Norway as our first Foundation Sponsor , a new category of support involving a substantial three-year commitment to ACGA. In 2015, and again in 2017, NBIM extended its support for a further two years, allowing ACGA to invest significantly more in original research, advocacy and educational outreach. This support has been instrumental in assisting the Association's development.
CLSA has been a Founding Sponsor of ACGA since 2001. Its long-term support has been vital in helping the Association undertake broad-based research on corporate governance in Asia, in particular CG Watch , the collaborative survey we carry out every two years with CLSA. We also extend our thanks to CLSA for being a Principal Sponsor of our annual conference every year since the inception of the event in 2001.
