Switzerland: New corporate governance rules for Swiss public companies

The Swiss electorate approved the Minder Initiative, which will fundamentally change the legal framework on executive compensation and other corporate governance matters for Swiss public companies.

While many aspects around such implementation will remain unclear for the months and years to come, the new rules will definitely require substantial changes to the articles and other company documents.
