BGF is directed by its Board comprising a non-executive Chairman, the Chief Executive, representatives of the five shareholder banks, and four independent non-executive directors. The Board meets quarterly.
Further guidance is provided by six sub-committees: Audit & Risk Committee; Remuneration Committee; Executive Committee; Investment Committee; Nomination Committee; and Valuation Committee. These committees meet on a frequent basis with membership providing sufficient levels of independence, oversight and challenge.
The BGF leadership model has been designed to promote effective and well advised decision making through transparency and a formalised Corporate Governance Framework.
