Specialised programme: The Board of Directors in the Financial Sector.
The role of directors in the financial world of tomorrow.
In cooperation with our partners Febelfin Academy and Assuralia, we organise a new edition of the 6-days education programme “The Board of Directors in the Financial Sector”. GUBERNA, Febelfin Academy and Assuralia join forces to bring you a programme that offers you in-depth knowledge to be well-equipped to take a seat in the board of a financial institution.
What does an (aspiring) director in the financial sector need to know today about the evolving role of the banks and insurance institutions in our society, about the impact of crises, about risks and risk management? What is the reference framework and the specific requirements for governance in the financial sector? But also, how does a board of directors make informed decisions? What are the caveats in working with committees, independent audit functions? What are the expectations from the supervisory authorities?
A joined team of governance and financial experts will bring you the answers to these questions, while guest speakers and your group of peer learners will guarantee a high level of exchange of experiences.
- Candidate directors: promising directors who need to prepare for a possible role at the top of their financial organisation.
- Experienced directors from other sectors: exercising a (possibly new) mandate in the financial sector and seeking clarification on specific aspects of banking governance.
- Existing directors (CEOs, COOs, CFOs and other senior executives): the strengthening of existing skills or preparation for new mandates within the Board.
