Matters Reserved for the Approval of the Board
The Board has the authority for ensuring that the Group is appropriately managed and achieves the strategic objectives it sets. To achieve this, the Board reserves certain matters for its own determination including matters relating to Group strategy, approval of interim and annual financial results, dividend policy, major capital expenditure, treasury policy, risk management, the effectiveness of the systems of internal control and amendments to the structure and capital of the Group.
The Board performs its responsibilities through an annual programme of meetings, and by continuous monitoring of the performance of the Group as a whole.
The Board also delegates a number of its responsibilities to committees and management.
