Board evaluation

Regulators have been clear that they consider board directors fundamentally responsible for the conduct, performance, and compliance of the firms they work for.

While maintaining a best-in-class board structure can slip down the corporate agenda as other issues intrude, the impact can be felt far and wide. Governance failures can either result in sanctions and fines from the regulator, impact the operational effectiveness of the firm, or in many cases – both together.

Putting the board through its paces

Our corporate governance experts can run a thorough evaluation exercise designed to spot risks and address potential exposures. We’ll evaluate:

Governance and structures – Do current arrangements foster debate and challenge, and enable clear, informed action?

Documentation and Management information – Is the board suitably equipped with high quality information to support decision making?

Knowledge and expertise – Do board members hold the right knowledge and expertise, particularly when exercising Senior Management Function responsibility?
