We believe that strong corporate governance practices help build an environment of trust, transparency and accountability that is essential for fostering long-term investment, financial stability and business integrity. This supports an ethical culture, stronger growth and performance, builds corporate legitimacy, and engenders more inclusive societies.

GIB AM's governance structure

The Board is ultimately responsible for leading and controlling the organisation and setting its strategy and its culture. It is also responsible for ensuring that an adequate, effective, comprehensive and transparent corporate governance framework is in place. In accordance with the Articles of Association, the Board has delegated the authority for all day-to-day management and control to the Chief Executive Officer. The Board has established two oversight committees chaired by Non-Executive Directors to support it.
