Board Size and Composition
The size of the Board is mandated by the By-Laws of the Bank. Pursuant to Article 4.2 of the By-Laws, the Board comprises of eight (8) directors and one (1) Managing Director, the ex-officio director in accordance with the article. Collectively, the Board comprises of diverse and dedicated professionals, who bring sound business insight, experience and expertise to the table.
Independence of the Board
All directors, except the Managing Director are independent in accordance with established best corporate governance principles and make decisions objectively and in the best interest of the Group. There is a clear delineation of roles and responsibilities between the Chairman and the Managing Director. There is no one individual with excessive power in decision making of the Group. The separation facilitates accountability, removes conflicts and enhances the Board’s oversight role of management.
Conflicts of Interest
The Bank maintains a Director’s Conflict of Interest Policy. This policy is designed to promote integrity, deter wrongdoing and to maintain stakeholders’ confidence. All directors must avoid situations in which their personal interests conflict with those of the Group. Upon appointment to the Board, directors are required to inform of their other interests and must notify the Chairman and Company Secretary of any material change to their interests. If a director has a conflict, he/she must declare, leave the room and does not participate in any discussion or vote on the proposed matter. Such disclosure is recorded in the minutes of the meeting.
In accordance with the By-Laws of the Bank, a director, except the Managing Director, unless tenure is sooner determined, shall hold office from the date on which he is elected or appointed until the close of the next annual general meeting of shareholders with each Director being eligible for re-election/reappointment if qualified. Each year, eight (8) of the directors stand for re-election/reappointment at the annual general meeting of shareholders. The Board is selected from nominees submitted by shareholders and votes are cast to elect nominees who accept the nomination.
