Higgs review due next week

In a week's time, the long expected Higgs review into non-executive directors is expected to be published.

Link: Limits on non-execs ruled out

While there are not expected to be any revolutionary changes to the report when it comes out next Monday it will tighten up controls on boardroom practice and extend the powers and liabilities of non-execs.

Higgs is expected to advise voluntary compliance on issues such as explaining how and why non-execs are chosen for the board and ensuring a more powerful role for the most senior non-execs.

Other parts of the review are expected to encourage companies to look further for boardroom talent and raise the number of female non-execs.
