Improving Finance Board Governance
Governance Evaluator understands that strong governance capabilities in boards of financial organisations are essential for the delivery of best value services for communities via responsible management of funds. In a constantly evolving regulatory environment, organisational leaders must seek to continuously improve their governance effectiveness and fully understand and enact their roles and responsibilities.
Based on good governance principles as outlined in the ASX Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (ASX 2007), and developed and tested in consultation with long-term partners Aon and a Financial Think Tank, the Governance Evaluator Finance platform is specifically designed to support boards to build strong governance capability.
The Governance Evaluator survey of board members and key stakeholders, the one-on-one interviews and the report provided us with valuable feedback. We appreciated Jodie’s insights from her extensive work with boards in a variety of industries and sectors. She facilitated a workshop with our board on her findings and assisted us to develop an action plan which enhanced our effectiveness and ensured we continue to meet APRA’s requirements.”
