ACGA Mission

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 corporate governance is fundamental to the long-term development of Asian economies and capital markets.



ACGA's scope of work covers three areas:


Tracking corporate governance developments across 12 markets in Asia Pacific and producing independent analyses of new laws and regulations, investor engagement and corporate practices.


Engaging in a constructive dialogue with financial regulators, stock exchanges, institutional investors and companies on practical issues affecting the regulatory environment and the implementation of better corporate governance practices in Asia.


Organising conferences and seminars that foster a deeper understanding of the competitive benefits of sound corporate governance and ways to implement it effectively.




ACGA is funded by a network of sponsors and member companies, including leading pension and investment funds, financial institutions, listed companies, accounting firms, and educational institutions. It is incorporated under the laws of Hong Kong and is managed by a secretariat based there. Its governing Council comprises directors from around Asia and other parts of the world.
