Corporate governance

As a Group, we comply with the principles of good corporate governance and have policies in place to support this compliance.

The Company’s organisational capacity and management processes and procedures are all underpinned by reference to the principle and application of sound corporate governance. The Board provides leadership to the business in order to create long-term value for stakeholders. There is a written statement of the division of responsibilities between Chair and Group Chief Executive, as well as a summary of the role of Senior Independent Director and of non-Executive Directors. There is also a schedule of matters expressly reserved for the collective decision of the board.

The protection of our reputation and the application of our values is the responsibility of all employees. 

These principles differentiate our products and services.  Trust is earned from others as a result of our commitment to these values and the ethical manner in which we behave.
