According to the FSA (Former UK regulator – FCA from 1st April 2013) “The effectiveness of governance in a firm is demonstrated by evidence of its practical operation as well as the design of governance structure and processes: the level of a Board’s interest in and engagement with the business it governs; its strength and understanding and challenge of the risks and issues in play at any time; the visibility and accessibility of its members; the clear evidence of active oversight through the regular scrutiny and challenge of management information and reporting. These are all contributing factors of effective governance”.
The FCA also stresses the need for firms to establish robust controls to monitor and mitigate risk and to ensure they are appointing the ‘right people to the right roles’.
