Foundation for Governance Research and Education 

       A Charitable Company focused on thought leadership and                                               governance best practice


The Foundation for Governance Research and Education, a charitable company limited by guarantee, was established in 2008 with the express purpose of conducting case study research and delivering education to directors and executives responsible for the governance and leadership of their organisations.

Primary Focus

Founded and led by former Citibanker Professor John Mellor, the primary focus of FGRE is on the governance of financial institutions. A key objective is preparing and supporting future leaders and, through its research and education, stimulating their development and professional ethos. 

FGRE's aims and objectives are supported by UK Finance.

UK Finance Chair, Bob Wigley, said:

"FGRE's forward-looking case-centred governance seminars, for banking and finance NEDs, are both timely and relevant to help equip board members to address the many issues confronting the sector in this challenging environment."
