The Board is committed to the highest standards of corporate governance. The Board complies and intends to continue to comply with the requirements of the UK Corporate Governance Code. Metro Bank will report to its Shareholders on its compliance with the UK Corporate Governance Code in its annual report, in accordance with the Listing Rules.
As envisaged by the UK Corporate Governance Code, the Board has established an Audit Committee, a Nomination Committee and a Remuneration Committee. In addition, the Board has also established a Risk Oversight Committee. If the need should arise, the Board may set up additional committees as appropriate.
The UK Corporate Governance Code recommends that at least half the board of directors of a UK-listed company, excluding the chairman, should comprise non-executive directors determined by the Board to be independent in character and judgement and free from relationships or circumstances which may affect, or could appear to affect, the director’s judgement. This Board consists of seven Non-Executive Directors each of whom Metro Bank regards as “independent non-executive directors” within the meaning of the UK Corporate Governance Code and free from any business or other relationship that could materially interfere with the exercise of their independent judgement.
The UK Corporate Governance Code recommends that the board of directors of a company with a premium listing on the Official List of the FCA should appoint one of the Non-Executive Directors to be the Senior Independent Director to provide a sounding board for the Chairman and to serve as an intermediary for the other Directors when necessary. The Senior Independent Director should be available to shareholders if they have concerns which contact through the normal channels of the CEO has failed to resolve or for which such contact is inappropriate. Alastair (Ben) Gunn has been appointed Senior Independent Director.
