What is IGI?
The Investors for Governance & Integrity Signatory initiative was started by Capital Concept in June 2013 to provide investors and stakeholders with a platform to promote good corporate governance and protect their shareholder rights in the MENA region.  
This fast growing initiative indicates that investors are increasingly aware of corporate governance factors and seek to incorporate them – both before they invest and as the ongoing, active owners of shares, bonds and other securities and assets.

IGI Declaration
"We have a duty to act in the best long-term interests of our beneficiaries. In this role, we believe that corporate governance issues can affect the performance of investment portfolios We also recognize that applying good corporate governance is a key factor in mitigating financial risks and protecting shareholders’ rights. Therefore, where consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities, we commit to the following:
·      To incorporate Governance & Integrity Rating (GIR) scores into investment analysis and decision-making processes;
·      To be an active owner and to incorporate GIR  scores and recommendations into our ownership policies and practices;
·      To promote the GIR within the financial and investment industries;
·      To work with Capital Concept and other signatories to enhance their effectiveness in implementing good corporate governance practices;
·      To report on our activities and progress towards implementing good governance."


Why join?
Becoming a signatory to the IGI allows your firm to publicly demonstrate its commitment to corporate governance and places your organization at the heart of a global community seeking to protect shareholders’ rights and mitigate risks by making sound investment decisions. 
A company that does not put the interests of its shareholders at the forefront will not attract investors and will not be a productive agent in improving the economy.
IGI Signatories commit to the following:
To incorporate Governance & Integrity Rating (GIR) scores into investment analysis and decision-making processes;
To be an active owner and to incorporate GIR recommendations into our ownership policies and practices;
To promote the GIR within the investment industry;
To work with Capital Concept and other signatories to enhance their effectiveness in implementing good corporate governance practices;
To report on our activities and progress towards implementing good governance.


Who can join?
1. Institutional Investors
Being a signatory to the IGI gives asset managers a competitive edge over their non-signatory peers by helping them make better investment decisions and mitigating financial risks.

2. Professional service partner
This category includes organizations that offer products or services to asset owners and/or investment managers. Although such professional service partners do not manage the funds directly, they do however, influence investment decisions.  For this group, becoming an IGI signatory demonstrates their commitment to promoting good corporate governance practices and actively supporting companies that uphold them.
