Abstract: Information asymmetry – the difference between company-specific information available to management and what is presented to boards – is often considered an impediment to board effectiveness. In some cases, governance failures arise because information is deliberately withheld from boards. Most boards work well, however, notwithstanding the information gap between managers and non-executive directors.
