During a recent luncheon, Angus Rahamut and Dan Riding became engaged in a discussion of issues related to corporate governance. Neither of these individuals is an expert in the field of corporate governance and either of them may have made an inaccurate statement. Which of the following is most likely to be an inaccurate statement?

A)
“In order to avoid conflicts of interest, board members should seek management approval prior to hiring external advisors.”
B)
“Board members must have the experience and qualifications necessary for them to be able to make decisions independently from the firm’s management.”
C)
“To be independent, a board member must not have any material relationship with the firm’s executive management or their families.”


Ideally, independent board members can hire external consultants without management’s approval. This enables the board to obtain advice on specialized issues that is not biased by the interests of management.

The board has decided to eliminate finders’ fees for its members for any potential acquisitions that are brought to management’s attention.
B)
Management is allowed to act independently of board of directors.
C)
The board of directors has decided to conduct a self-assessment.


The board of directors should be allowed to act independently of management. Management should not be allowed to act independently from the board.

C)
the board of directors protects shareholder interests, and the shareholders have a voice in governance.
