Corporate governance

The corporate governance standards  in a country are a major influence on deciding whether investing in stocks will be lucrative. In some countries , there are many measures taken to ensure that people of integrity manage companies. In others , companies have no qualms promoting  identity theft, so that they can place their puppets in the management of  high profile companies.  A fresher from college or  a crooked cheating housewife will try to pass off as an experienced person, even though she knows very little, as she has very powerful backers.

In such cases, investing in stocks can be a very risky business, as these promoters  of companies will only be interested in personal gain, and not be interested in safeguarding their shareholders stake.
