Welcome to the 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 is in partnership with UK Finance and the Worshipful Company of International Bankers.

Faculty and Advisory Board

The education is tailored to deliver output of practical value. To that end, FGRE’s research is complimented by a faculty of senior practitioners and an Advisory Board of members with relevant practical experience and knowledge.
