Trephena – this post has been removed as it was not on Corporate GovernanceJanuary 10, 2017 at 8:20 pm
@futaim -I am not sure why you are posting this on our Corporate Governance forum?
We would prefer the mentor to contact us directly with their registration number and a copy of their online mentoring course certificate and we will assign them the OBU listed mentor label (in place of ‘participant’).
We would therefore recommend that they attempt to answer student queries on our forum as this would allow them to build up their own reputation and really help students rather than seek free publicity.January 12, 2017 at 10:15 am
@trephena – Thanks for ur remarks. he actually was my mentor in period 28 and lecturer in a college that time… and a good one of course… i don’t know the exact number of students mentored by him last year.. I just came to know yesterday that he is offering some online services and just intended to help him to reach out… will forwards your suggestion to him soon.

Thank you -so would you kindly not post the same link again as it will be removed? So far I will allow one plug for this and only one as the more you post it the more it seems that you have more than a vested interest in this person.
I have suggested a method by which mentors can achieve publicity legitimately and give something back to Open Tuition and its students. OT has its own operating costs and is not a free platform for advertising and we will ban those who abuse our policies.
Open Tuition as a matter of policy will monitor the performance of all mentors to ensure that any claims made accord with facts and actual results so that students can rely on information they read on our site.January 17, 2017 at 5:30 pm
Good evening trephena.
In an earlier comment i mentioned, i would like to use HSBC, now what bothers me is that, its a group company, should i just use the HSBC UK or should i use the whole group, because on corporate governance page for HSBC, they mention details of the board composition as a group committee
And also on going through, i read that HSBC use UK codes plus Hong Kong stock exchange codes as well, so in my research do i really have to include the Hong Kong Stock exchange codes also,
and further more, i read in the HSBC website that due to the 2007 bank crisis, they had to make a structural change, something called ring fencing, would it be useful for my research under the topic, this is the link about ring fencing :
Please guide me on this, i will be very grateful
Thanks & regards

You could use either the group or HSBC UK or a mixture of both as the focus you should put on this should be on the scandals and issues faced by the whole group really. I don’t know if I mentioned previously but OBU markers apparently are fed up with Topic 17 having become a ‘tick-box’ exercise and want to see that students can discuss the main issues and think for themselves. The title is expected to change in the next year to reflect this position -and students will have to use a company that has been involved in CG scandal(s). Therefore adopting this approach now would be a good idea and this is best done by consider both the HSBC UK and worldwide.
Regarding ring fencing -yes it is worth mentioning it and the legislation but don’t over do it (it affects all UK banks and has been imposed on them rather than being the banks’ own initiative in fact amendments are afoot:
I would say from a CG perspective the personal liability of a bank’s personnel is just as if not more important as instead of being able to hide behind corporate responsibility, managers could find themselves facing criminal charges and custodial sentences. Had this legislation been in force earlier there are at least 2 former CEOs of other UK banks who would almost certainly have been sent to prison.
