As the national accountancy body, the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) is pleased to support the Singapore Stewardship Principles (SSP), which is an industry-led effort to encourage responsible investment and promote good stewardship practices amongst investors. With SSP, we should expect more active engagement between investors and investee companies. As stewards of companies, accountants have a critical role to play in being the conduit between the investee companies and investors to communicate how sustainable business value is created in an environment of good governance.
Stewardship is important for the wider business and investment ecosystem, including investors and investee companies. The Singapore Stewardship Principles (SSP) are intended to enhance this positive environment by encouraging companies to pursue the spirit of good governance and stewardship over that of form, with the ultimate objective of helping companies secure their performance over the long term.
