ABSTRACT
Good corporate governance means adhering to strong principles and not merely complying with rules. And insurance companies should wield their clout as large investors to encourage publicly traded companies to practice a higher level of governance. Investors should reward companies that have strong corporate governance with higher stock prices. But strong corporate governance means more than just making sure that the bare legal requirements are met. Investors must look beyond the form of compliance into the substance of the organization to make sure it truly is governed well.
