At a glance

This report compares the responses of PwC’s 2013 Annual Corporate Directors Survey and the 2013 Investor Survey to identify areas where directors and investors hold similar views on certain issues and where they differ in others. It also includes certain CEO perspectives from PwC’s 16th Annual Global CEO Survey.

In the summer of 2013, PwC conducted two surveys to gain insights from key corporate governance constituents: One survey sought the insights of public company directors, and another sought the insights of investors. More than 900 directors responded to PwC’s 2013 Annual Corporate Directors Survey—of whom 70% serve on the boards of companies with more than $1 billion in annual revenue. Sixty-five institutional investors, with over $2 trillion of aggregate assets under management, responded to PwC’s 2013 Investor Survey.

This report compares the responses of these two groups and includes certain CEO perspectives from PwC’s 16th Annual Global CEO Survey. We hope that this information will serve to highlight for directors, investors, and company management areas where they hold similar views on certain issues and where they differ in others.
