Board Governance

The Board Governance committee focuses on the quality of the board of directors as the primary oversight body of the company, taking the perspective of institutional investors.  The committee’s priorities will include issues relating to board structure, diversity, remuneration, independence and oversight of risk management. It can also broaden to include newer themes that directors need to be aware of, which can relate to issues such as cyber risk and tax policy. Committee outputs can help to inform company executives, boards and regulators about institutional investor expectations of good board governance.
