Nestor Advisors has been a preferred provider of governance services to many development finance institutions, including the IFC, the EBRD, FMO, PROPARCO, DEG, IFU and IDB Invest, and their investees. We also have an extensive track record advising policy makers on the development of national or international governance norms and their implementation in developed and emerging markets.
Our experience in this field includes:
Review of DFI governance organisation and internal policies: Nestor Advisors has evaluated the corporate governance action plan and the organisational fitness of the corporate governance division of several DFIs. We have developed templates for the evaluation of portfolio financial institutions and the assessment of country governance frameworks for leading multilaterals.
- Pre- or post- investment corporate governance assessments: Nestor Advisors has assisted several multilateral and national DFIs with corporate governance assessments/due diligence and board evaluations of actual or prospective investees in the banking/financial, oil and gas and mining sectors.
- Development of governance codes and policies: We have taken important advisory assignments in the development and implementation of the Hellenic, Romanian and Russian Corporate Governance Codes and have assisted several Central Banks in the development of their rule book as regards corporate governance of banks. The majority of these assignments were funded by DFIs. The firm has been an active commentator on the development of important CG policies by the OECD, the Walker Review and the Parliamentary Commission on Banking in the UK, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and the EU Commission.
- Training for investment officers and nominee directors: Several DFIs and other investment institutions regularly request the organisation of training for their investment officers and nominee directors.
