dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study is to examine the Nomination Committee (NC) in Maltese listed companies. The study achieves this by assessing the Maltese regulatory framework relating to this Committee, as well as its roles, status and effectiveness. A predominantly qualitative mixed methodology was employed to achieve these objectives. Twenty-five semi-structured interviews were held with two financial analysts, two MFSA representatives, eight audit firm representatives and 13 representatives of Maltese Listed Companies (MLCs) Research findings show that the NC is not as yet not well established among MLCs. There is a particular lack of insistence on the part of local regulatory authorities, as well as substantial resistance from listed companies, with regard to the adoption of this committee. Furthermore, most NCs in such companies are not performing all of the roles listed in their Code while the roles currently performed may need to be carried out in a more structured manner. Yet it is highly worthwhile for such companies to devote more attention to the NC, this being one of the best possible bastions of appropriate corporate governance. The change in the status of the NC from being merely recommended by the Code of Principles of Good Corporate Governance to becoming mandatory by the Listing Rules is increasingly called for. In this way, Maltese listed companies will need to embrace such a change. It is hoped that this study will contribute towards fostering more awareness about the NC and the corporate governance of Maltese listed companies.en_GB
