Corporate Governance And Institutional Investment In The Australian Financial Markets

Grant number: DP0557673

Abstract

The financial markets play a vital role in Australian economic life. The majority of the assets of Australian superannuation funds and managed investment funds are financial products. This project will provide an comprehensive account of the different types of complex financial products available in Australia and an assessment of the corporate governance practices at Australian companies and Australian institutional investors in relation to their use of complex financial products. Through these outcomes, the project will contribute to a broader understanding of the Australian financial markets and the enhancement of corporate governance practices in Australia.
