Corporate Governance in Mexico
Corporate governance can be defined as a system by which shareholders participation, board of directors, independent auditory, legitimated stakeholders and all the direction activities in an organization are monitored, directed and regulated. All the good practices of the corporate governance are carried out with the aim of increasing the organizations value in order to facilitate its access to credit, capital and to maintain the company’s perpetuity. The efficiency in the management of any corporate governance depends on the corporate responsibility, transparency, fairness and accountability, which are basic principles that can impact directly in the success of the company. The necessity of having a corporate governance arises because the employees and managers´ interests can differ from the organization’s interests, this happens because they are not the owners of the stakes so it does not matter if the company have gains or losses, their salaries will not be affected, they will continue receiving the same amount of money for the work they perform. This way, with the creation of corporate governance, organizations can assure that the company’s interests and the interests of the people that conform it are aligned. In order to effectively carry on all the activities and decisions made by the corporate governance and for its conformation organizations must select a group of members that act in a professional, honest and responsibly way so the company can achieve its goals and avoid further problems with its administration, management, legal concerns and company success. On the other hand, poor corporate governance practices and lack of ethics can affect the financial performance and market value of companies.

This information let us now that Mexican companies believe that corporate governances are necessary for the fulfillment of the characteristics previously mentioned in this work. compensation and replacement of board members. the insurance of a sufficient and proper process of disclosure of information within and outside the company. culture. the establishment of an Audit Committee to ensure effective corporate governance practices that allow for adequate supervision of the administration of the company. An example of this is that a hundred per cent of the automobilist companies have a corporate governance. natural resources and companies listed in the stock market. action plans. traditions. regulation and results can differ from one to another because the local authorities. the sectors that follow this trend are the ones related with real estate.

but the disappearance of all the family companies is due to the lack of corporate governance and preparation for the succession which can be considered as the Achilles´ hell of Mexican companies.

With this work we can realize that Mexican companies should implement corporate governance in order to maintain their businesses for a larger number of generations and to maintain the competitiveness not only of their companies but also of all the Mexican economy. in Mexico only three out of ten family businesses are able to consolidate the second generation and only four per cent of it reach the third generation.
