Corporate Governance for Development Financial Institutions

Home > FIDE > FIDE Elective Programme > Technical Programmes > Corporate Governance for Development Financial Institutions


This programme is designed specifically for development financial institutions’ (DFI) directors to enhance their roles and responsibilities including practical outworking as well as to consider how DFI boards should engage with key stakeholders. It will also provide insights on the financial accounting and operational aspects of DFIs, and how boards should exercise effective oversight on the implementation of strategies and risk mitigation actions by management. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss case studies on issues confronting DFIs and corporate governance best practices. On Day 2, the programme will focus on enhancing the understanding of the role of DFIs in supporting the developmental agenda to promote economic growth. The session is to strengthen the knowledge and capabilities of directors to enable them to play their roles effectively in overseeing the risks of financing to strategic sectors. The final session will be a panel discussion that provides participants with the opportunity to draw on the collective experience of the faculty to enhance their ability in imparting their independent views and providing the necessary check and balance. The session will share the relevant and appropriate questions that directors could pose to the senior management in challenging their decision making.


Faculty: Dato’ Mohd Hanif bin Sher Mohamed, Datuk Zaiton Mohd Hassan, Datuk Yvonne Chia, Mr Jeffrey Chew
