404 Institute Webcast to Feature Moody's Perspective on Corporate Governance
The 404 Institute's February 2 Webcast -- "Analyzing Corporate Governance from a Creditor's Perspective" -- will focus on the rating agency's perspective on corporate governance.
Featuring Kenneth Bertsch, senior vice president of corporate governance for Moody's Investors Service, the Webcast will address an array of key questions. They include: How do creditors view corporate governance? Are qualitative factors more or less important than quantitative factors? What issues are at the heart of corporate governance concerns?
Mr. Bertsch will also describe the findings of a series of recent interviews with CEOs and directors. Among the topics he will share with 404 Institute members are key improvements in board practices, ongoing concerns about how boards function, and the composition and role of the audit committee.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
