* Corporate Governance and Financial Ethics
February 22, 2006, 5:00 – 7:00 P.M.

In the latest round of financial scandals, researchers estimate that shareholders of the 110 companies involved in options backdating suffered stock price declines ranging between 20 and 50 percent.* The total dollar losses associated with these declines amount to $100 to $250 billion.
In what context should financial decision-makers view such corporate malfeasance and its implications?
Prof. John Boatright, the keynote speaker of the meeting, will discuss the responsibility of intermediaries, such as accountants, lawyers, and bankers, to act as gatekeepers in preventing misconduct.
Mr. Timur Gök, Regional Director of PRMIA Chicago, will draw some lessons from research that has explored and quantified the link between corporate governance and corporate value creation and destruction.
The moderator for the meeting will be Ms. Melissa Van Hees, CFA, Director – Risk Management at BRI Partners.
John R. Boatright is the Raymond C. Baumhart, S.J., Professor of Business Ethics in the Graduate School of Business at Loyola University Chicago.* He served five years as the Executive Director of the Society for Business Ethics, and is a past president of the Society.* He is the author of the books Ethics and the Conduct of Business and Ethics in Finance.* He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Chicago.
