Founding Secretary General
Jamie is the founding Secretary General of ACGA, which was incorporated in Hong Kong in 1999. He is responsible for overall management of the Association, as well as directing ACGA's research, advocacy and educational work in 11 Asian markets.
Jamie is a published author and has more than 28 years experience as a writer, editor and analyst covering the economies of Greater China and East Asia from Hong Kong. Prior to the establishment of ACGA in mid-1999, he ran his own consulting firm and carried out customised economic research on mainly finance-related topics, including corporate governance, for multinational clients in Asia. From 1992-95 he worked for the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) as editor of Business Asia, a regional management newsletter, and was a contributor to The Economist magazine from 1994-96. Jamie began his journalistic career in the late 1980s as a reporter for the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong. He is a graduate of the Australian National University, Canberra, where he received a BA (Honours) in political science and Chinese language.
Over 2001 to 2007, Jamie was a member of the Public Shareholders Group, a committee formed by the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission to advise it on shareholder rights and corporate governance matters in Hong Kong.
From May 2006 to June 2010, he served on the Listing Committee of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (SEHK). The Listing Committee is the body responsible for approving all new listings on the SEHK, deciding changes to the listing rules, and undertaking review and disciplinary hearings.
In July 2013, Jamie was appointed to the Financial Reporting Review Panel of the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) in Hong Kong for a period of three years. In October, he also joined the Operations Oversight Committee of the FRC.
The Asian Corporate Governance Association (ACGA) is an independent, non-profit membership organisation dedicated to working with investors, companies and regulators in the implementation of effective corporate governance practices throughout Asia. ACGA was founded in 1999 from a belief that corporate governance is fundamental to the long-term development of Asian economies and capital markets.
ACGA's scope of work covers three areas:
Tracking corporate governance developments across 11 markets in Asia and producing independent analyses of new laws and regulations, investor activism and corporate practices.
Engaging in a constructive dialogue with financial regulators, stock exchanges, institutional investors and companies on practical issues affecting the regulatory environment and the implementation of better corporate governance practices in Asia.
Organising conferences and seminars that foster a deeper understanding of the competitive benefits of sound corporate governance and ways to implement it effectively.
ACGA is funded by a network of sponsors and corporate members, including leading pension and investment funds, other financial institutions, listed companies, multinational corporations, professional firms and educational institutions. It is incorporated under the laws of Hong Kong and is managed by a secretariat based there. Its governing Council comprises directors from around Asia.
