The Group’s system of governance comprises three elements:
1. Corporate governance framework: how the business is managed;
2. Risk management system: how risks are identified, measured, managed, monitored and reported; and
3. Internal control system: the controls behind the corporate governance framework and the risk management framework.
The purpose of the system of governance is to ensure the safety and soundness of the Group and its key entities.
Our system of governance is fully described in our latest annual report and accounts.
