The corporate governance in NBFCs is different as well as unique. It is because its activities are less transparent. Moreover, these financial institutions differ from many other companies when it comes to complexity and range of their business risks. Therefore the corporate governance structure is essential and it should be enhanced.
Corporate Governance means the set of systems, process and principles by which a company is governed. They lay down the guidelines as to how a company can be directed and controlled in a way that it can fulfil its goals and objectives such that it adds to the value of the company and is beneficial for stakeholders as well.
The significance of corporate governance can be deduced by the following factors:
Compliance, risk mitigation and governance are related to each other. A company is governed on principles that work accurately to ensure that compliance is implied on the company legally. If a company stays disciplined in its operations then it can tackle any risk arising out of any events, whether economical or technological.
Corporate governance is essential especially during restructuring events like mergers and acquisitions. It helps a company to differentiate between good and bad deals. Mergers and acquisitions can also improve the quality of corporate governance.
Corporate governance strengthens the shareholder contentment. It is essential in safeguarding the valuations of a company as the main goal of corporate governance is to maximize the concerns of the company’s shareholders.
Corporate governance plays a pivotal role in determining industrial competitiveness. Better Corporate governance in NBFCs provides enhanced corporate performance and also gives better economic results.

A corporate fraud is a term used to denote a fraud that occurs within an organization by its own owners or by its managers and involves intentional dishonesty to trick the public, investors or lending institutions thereby resulting in financial gains to the individual or to the organization.
Majority of the corporate frauds come under the category of asset misappropriation, money laundering, frauds done by senior management, accounting frauds and regulatory non-compliance.
The above mentioned practices dent the image of our financial system. The organizations are therefore required to be vigilant and attentive to these issues and concerns. They should adopt pro-active and anti-fraud measures as opposed being reactive.
The following factors can be the key to solve the ethical issues:
Due to the occurrence of major financial crisis, a lot of emphasis is given on strengthening the risk management practices for financial and non-financial institutions. In case of financial institutions, much attention is given to financial risk like market risk, credit and liquidity.
