For a constant, solid and sustainable growth

Banca Generali’s overall corporate governance framework was defined in line with the current laws and regulations, also taking into account the recommendations of the Corporate Governance Code, that Banca Generali S.p.A. complies with, the principles enshrined in the best practices (including international ones), as well as the Bank of Italy’s Supervisory Regulations and, with particular reference to corporate governance issues, to the Regulations for the Prudential Supervision of Banks issued by the Bank of Italy with Circular No. 285.

Banca Generali S.p.A.’s corporate governance structure is based on the Italian traditional model, which consists of the following corporate bodies: a Board of Directors (composed of 9 members, 4 women and 5 men, including the Chairman and the CEO), within which there are 4 Internal Board Committees (Remuneration Committee; Nomination, Governance and Sustainability Committee; Credit Committee and Control and Risk Committee), a Board of Statutory Auditors and the General Shareholders’ Meeting.

Through the Regulation of the Board of Directors and Internal Board Committees, sustainability aspects and principles have been included in the Managerial Steering Committee and in the specific competence areas of all Internal Board Committees. The General Counsel & Sustainability Area, where the sustainability-related competencies have converged since 2018, takes forward its guiding role, as a key element connecting the different internal Structures.
