Please join us on Monday 3 April 2017 for the second iNED Forum of 2017


Addressing the key challenges that confront the effectiveness of Board Committees

Today's regulators in the UK financial services sector place great weight upon the shoulders of NEDs; especially when it comes to performing well on Boards and their Committees.

Under the PRA's Senior Insurance Managers Regime (SIMR) and the FCA's Reformed Approved Persons Regime (RAPR) certain “Prescribed" Responsibilities can only be assigned to NEDs who have been approved by the PRA or FCA to perform a governing function.

In particular, the following "governing NED" roles are in scope:

  • Chairman of the Board
  • Senior Independent Director
  • Chairs of the Risk, Audit, Remuneration and Nominations Committees

Our April iNED Forum will offer an overview of the key regulatory requirements for Audit, Risk, Remuneration and Nominations Committees, together with insights that will help NEDs rise to the challenges inherent in performing well on such Committees in the Solvency II era.
