Risk management

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for establishing and overseeing the Group’s risk management framework. The Audit Committee is responsible for discussing our policies with respect to risk assessment and risk management and oversees how our management monitors compliance with our risk management policies and procedures. 

Internal audit

Our internal audit process is a fundamental component of the risk management process. It’s objective is to provide reasonable assurance to our Board of Directors and management that the controls put in place to mitigate our key risks are designed appropriately and operating effectively. The results of internal audit reviews are presented to the Audit Committee. The output of all internal audit work is an important input into the development of the risks assessments we perform.
