A term used to describe governance models prevalent in the United Kingdom and the United States. The Anglo-Saxon model is shareholder-centric (meaning that the primary purpose of the corporation is considered to be the maximisation of shareholder value), with a single board of directors, management participation on the board (particularly the CEO), and an emphasis on transparency and disclosure through audited financial reports.
