The Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) has proposed certain CG Code amendments in a ‘live’ consultation. A hard cap of nine years for INED tenure is the most talked about of the key proposals, which also include the appointment of a Lead INED where the Chair is not “independent”; mandatory onboarding and ongoing training of directors; board performance reviews; gender diversity; risk management; and a hard cap on over-boarding.

Directors, governance professionals, senior management, and anybody involved in or interested in governance will receive an overview from this seminar, and a discussion of the areas of most interest to listed issuers. The consultation period will end in August and it is proposed that the anticipated changes to the Listing Rules will take effect on 1 January 2025, with transitional arrangements for the hard cap proposals.
