Corporate Governance System

Transparency, openness and clarity: these are the values that inspire our governance system.

For a constant, solid and sustainable growth

Banca Generali’s governance system is based on well-defined pillars, such as the central role of the Board of Directors, the management of conflicts of interest, transparency in the disclosure of corporate decisions, and the efficiency of the internal control system.

Banca Generali has also adopted the Corporate Governance Code for Listed Companies of Borsa Italiana.

The Company’s organisational structure is in line with the traditional corporate governance model. This system is founded on an administrative body, i.e., the Board of Directors, which is appointed by the General Shareholders’ Meeting and is responsible for managing and strategically overseeing the Company, and on the Board of Statutory Auditors, which is entrusted with management control. The functions related to statutory auditing of the Company’s accounts are entrusted to Independent Auditors duly registered with the specific professional rolls set by Consob.

The Board of Directors is appointed by the Shareholders’ Meeting for a term of up to three years. Among its members, the Board elects a Chairman and may appoint a Deputy Chairman. It may establish an Executive Committee and appoint one or more Chief Executive Officers, defining powers and remuneration. Banca Generali currently does not have an Executive Committee.

The Board of Directors has established four Board Committees with consultative and advisory functions on specific matters: the Remuneration Committee, the Internal Audit and Risk Committee and the Nomination, Governance and Sustainability Committee and Credits Committee.
