The aim of the present paper is to highlight the characteristics of corporate governance structures in three main areas: Europe, USA and Latin America. This paper offers an overview of the common elements and divergent points of the corporate governance models following the particularities of the selected regions. In order to identify the main directions of reform, we discuss the nature and structure of corporate regimes. To conclude, we can’t speak of a single set of global corporate governance standards, but rather convergence on selected issues within regional blocs. New tendencies generated by the financial ‘underworld’ demand for a solid reform.
