Corporate Governance

The Board has the ultimate responsibility for ensuring that the Company is managed effectively and in the best interests of the shareholders, customers, employees and other stakeholders (including regulators).

The Board delegates specific powers for some matters to committees, details of which are set out below.

  • Board Composition

    The Board consists of the Executive Directors, the Non-Executive Chairman and four further Non-Executive Directors (the “Non-Executive Directors”). The Company regards all of the Non-Executive Directors as “Independent Non-Executive Directors” within the meaning of the UK Corporate Governance Code and free from any business or other relationship that could materially interfere with the exercise of their independent judgement.
