Foreword

Company groups are the predominant corporate structure found in Latin America, comprising most of the listed companies in the region. Because they raise both important opportunities as well as risks for Latin American capital markets, policy-makers and regulators from the region are giving increased attention to such groups, including how best to ensure that their corporate governance practices contribute to stable and prosperous markets.
