Our Approach to Corporate Governance
Our corporate governance policies and procedures are laid out in a series of documents governing the organisation and management of Fortifia. The Board of Directors has adopted a set of Corporate Governance Guidelines aimed at explaining and promoting an understanding of our governance structure. Other important corporate governance documents include the Articles of Association, the Organizational Guidelines and Regulations, and the Code of Conduct.
Our Risk Management function plays a central role within our organisation as it fosters a disciplined risk culture and creates appropriate transparency, while providing a sound basis for management to define a suitable risk profile. Risk Management is instrumental in ensuring a prudent and intelligent approach to risk-taking, which appropriately balances risk and return; and optimizes the allocation of capital throughout the Group. Moreover, through a proactive risk management culture and the use of state-of-the-art quantitative and qualitative tools, we strive to minimise the potential for undesired risk exposure in our operations.
Committed to Compliance
We place the utmost care in ensuring that our employees and we maintain the highest standards of compliance with all legal, regulatory and internal requirements. Our employees and partners are asked to observe strict standards of professional conduct at all times. Compliance considerations are critically important when selecting employees, developing training tools, defining processes and rules; and are all vital elements of our supervisory and control systems.
We are committed to employing a compensation approach that rewards excellence, encourages personal contribution and professional growth and aligns employees’ interests, thus motivating the creation of shareholder value. Long-term success in your industry depends on the strength of human capital, and our goal is to be the employer of choice in the markets and business segments in which we operate.
