Corporate Governance

The Directors recognise the benefits of good corporate governance and are committed to a high standard of compliance with the provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code (the Code).

Overview

The Directors ensure that the Company keeps up to date with all corporate governance developments and best practice wherever practical.

The Code governs the relationship between the constituent parts of the Company, namely the Board and its committees; leadership; effectiveness; accountability; remuneration and relations with shareholders.

We have restructured the relationship between our two principal boards – Charles Stanley Group PLC (the holding company, or CSG) and Charles Stanley & Co. Limited (the principal regulated entity, or CSC) – and reorganised the committee arrangements. Under the new framework, which came into effect in March 2017.

The CSG Board has been charged with the responsibility to set strategy for the Group and to monitor the performance of the operating subsidiaries; and

The CSC Board has been charged with the responsibility to oversee, govern and direct the operation of the Group’s regulated business in line with the Group strategy.

The Board of Charles Stanley Group PLC comprises two Executive Directors, and five Non-executive Directors. A short biography of each can be found below.
