Independent Directorships

Overview

With stakeholders demanding ever increasing board oversight, companies are facing more and more pressure to comply with corporate governance codes and best practices.

Against this backdrop, the role of Independent Director has evolved over the years and is now a profession in its own right. Independence is a key component to corporate governance and adds value to organisations. Independent directors provide an unbiased view, can challenge the decision-making process in a positive way and – because of their exposure to a wide variety of operational structures – add valuable insights into best practices.

 

Sound and effectively operating boards bring together a diversified set of skills and backgrounds. The appointment of the right independent director ensures a diverse board covering all necessary areas of expertise, seniority and experience.
