NEW SME CG Assessment Tool

The signatories of Corporate Governance Development Framework (CGDF) have over the past years worked closely together on improving Corporate Governance (CG) in their investee companies and exchanged ideas on how to integrate CG in their due diligence process. These efforts initially focused on larger companies and investments above US$10 million, for which a set of assessment tools and checklists was developed. However, the CGDF signatories realized, that for smaller investments and less sophisticated companies, there is a need for a simpler tool. Therefore, this SME Governance Tool was developed.

This tool is currently in a Beta version, open for feedback from Working Group members on practical application of its use for the next 6 months, until the end of 2017. If you have any comments or suggestions to improve it, they can be sent to: Andres Oneto (aoneto@caf.com) and Vladislava Ryabota (vryabota@ifc.org)
