The Board of Directors is supported by three main Committees in its functions, namely Audit and Risk, Corporate Governance and Nomination and Remuneration. The various Committees are headed by experienced Chairmen who report on their activities and make recommendations on matters delegated to them under their respective Charters at the subsequent meeting of the Board. In order to fulfil the duties and responsibilities delegated to them, the Committees are authorised to obtain independent professional advice at the Company’s expense.
The Audit and Risk Committee assists the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities and is also accountable for any other duties that may be assigned by the Board from time to time.
The Corporate Governance Committee has been set up in order to advise the Board on Corporate Governance matters and to ensure that the Company complies with the requirements of the National Code of Corporate Governance for Mauritius (2016) (the “Code”).
The Nomination and Remuneration Committee has been set up to advise the Board on the structure, size and composition of the Board and its Committees. It also makes recommendations on the remuneration policy for Executive and Senior Management.
Responsibilities of the Board Committees as set out in the Board Charter may be reviewed on a yearly basis or as and when required with the introduction of or amendments to laws and regulations.
