Centre Listed Companies
GUBERNA has always had a specific focus on corporate governance in listed companies. Together with our partners EY and VBO/FEB, GUBERNA strives to identify relevant national and international developments in corporate governance and company law. In addition, we regularly carry out research and organise activities for listed companies.
Further, GUBERNA is a member of the Belgian Commission for Corporate Governance, and ecoDa (European Confederation of Directors' Associations), which gives us a unique position.

In this way, GUBERNA is involved in all relevant Belgian and European corporate governance developments which allows us to let our voice be heard, in Belgium and on a European level.
What we offer you
GUBERNA organises different activities for listed companies. With workgroups, round tables and other events, we dive into and debate on several relevant themes with listed companies. On a yearly basis we organize the Day of Listed Companies where we zoom in on different innovations and new challenges for listed companies, not just from a legal standpoint, but also broader: economic, social, etc. In addition, GUBERNA has initiated an audit committee exclusively for members. The Audit Committee Forum is a platform to share experiences related to the Audit Committee. Best practices and sharing concrete tips and tricks are the main focus in order to increase awareness and the ability to effectively implement and increase audit committee processes.

Research and Development
GUBERNA regularly carries out research about governance practices for listed companies. In the first place, this research is carried out based on public information (formal compliance). On top of this, we pride ourselves in researching more qualitative corporate governance practices in listed companies. Reference publications include the biennial monitoring study on the Belgian Corporate Governance Code and an update on remuneration practices in Belgian listed companies.
Of course, international studies focused on corporated governance are also followed intensely by our experts in order to ensure that we stay up to date on the develops in our neighboring countries. GUBERNA not only observes on the sidelines but plays an active role in national and international debates and discussions based on a strong repertoire of experience and knowledge.
