ecoDa/EBF joint conference

Register now: joint conference ecoDa and EBF: Boards’ efficiency and fit & proper rules in financial organizations – Brussels, October 25

Board effectiveness is a key challenge for boards, a challenge that goes far beyond judging structural elements such as board composition and the definitions of roles and responsibilities. A key driver lies in board dynamics, where independence (of mind) and professionalism play a crucial role.
The European Central Bank has recently published a guide on the 'fit and proper' assessments that it undertakes in respect of board members for the institutions under its direct supervision. The European Banking Authority, in cooperation with ESMA, is also about to issue its updated guidelines which aim at further improving and harmonising the assessment of suitability within the EU financial sector and at ensuring sound governance arrangements in institutions.
