The Board of Directors currently consists of two Executive Directors and three independent Non-executive Directors. The Board is responsible for directing, governing and controlling the Company’s business by, inter alia, developing and approving the Company’s strategy, financial budget, risk framework and supporting policies and procedures. Members of the Board are appointed by the Shareholders and evaluated collectively and individually by the Board on an annual basis.
The Company’s Executive Directors are involved in the day-to-day management of the Company and business activities of the Group in accordance with the framework of authority delegated to them by the Board. The performance of each Executive Director is evaluated annually by the Board against agreed performance criteria.
The Board meets four times during the financial year, excluding any ad hoc meetings held to consider special business.
The Board has delegated certain of its functions to Board committees but remain ultimately responsible and accountable for these functions.
Internal Control Systems
To meet the Company’s responsibility to discharge its governance responsibilities and provide reliable financial and operational information, the Company maintains systems of internal controls and risk management. The controls are designed to encompass financial, operational, compliance and sustainability issues, providing reasonable assurance that transactions are concluded in accordance with delegated authority and are properly processed and recorded, that assets are adequately protected against material losses, unauthorised acquisition, use or disposal, and that policies and procedures are consistently applied.
These systems include a documented organisational structure and division of responsibility, clarity of accountability, established policies and procedures which are communicated throughout the Group, and the careful selection, training and development of people. The Company does not have an independent internal audit function.
The Company monitors the operation of the internal control systems in order to determine if there are deficiencies and corrective actions are taken to address control deficiencies as they are identified. The Board of Directors, operating through the Audit and Risk Committee, is responsible for the review of the effectiveness of the system of internal controls and risk management.
There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of internal controls, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of controls. Accordingly, an effective internal controls system can provide only reasonable assurance.
