The Board is responsible for the leadership and direction of the Group and is ultimately responsible to the Company’s shareholders for the Group’s long-term success.
The Board takes the lead in areas such as strategy, financial policy and making sure we maintain a sound system of internal control. By delegating authority to its Committees, the Board directs and reviews the Group’s operations within an agreed framework of controls, allowing risk to be assessed and managed within agreed parameters.
