Professor Simon Deakin, Faculty of Law: The effect of the Cadbury Code on boards and stockmarkets

Themes: Corporate governance and ethics

The Cadbury Archive at Cambridge Judge Business School has been completed with the addition of copies of all the speeches on corporate governance made by Sir Adrian Cadbury, Chairman of the UK Committee on the Financial Aspects of Corporate Governance. The Archive, established in 2010 and part of the Cambridge Corporate Governance Network (CCGN), is a major source for researchers into corporate governance.

The level of the diffusion of the Cadbury Code is very impressive says Professor Simon Deakin, Professor of Law at the Faculty of Law. The model of independent boards has spread from the developed to the developing world. Where protection for shareholder rights has risen, the value of shares of listed companies has increased as has the turnover of shares on public stock exchanges.
