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.
