Board of Directors


The Board of Directors of the East Caribbean Financial Holding Company Limited is responsible  for  the  governance  of  the  Group,  and  is  committed  to  adhering  to  the highest standards of corporate governance. It is guided by a formal Corporate Governance Policy.  The Board comprises appointed and elected directors. It sets policies for and reviews the Group’s strategies, financial objectives, operating plans, and plans for manage-ment  succession.  The  Board  meets  every  month  and  special  meetings  may  be  held when the need arises.

The Board provides leadership of the Group within a framework of sound corporate governance  practices,  as  well  as  prudent  and  effective  controls  that  facilitate  risk assessment and management. It sets the Group’s strategic goals and objectives.  The Board establishes the company’s values and ensures that its obligations to shareholders and other stakeholders are understood and met.

All directors must take decisions objectively in the interest of the company.

There is a clear delineation of responsibilities between the running of the Board and the executive responsibility for the running of the Group.  To facilitate accountability and transparency, no one individual or group of individuals dominates the decision making  process.  The  roles  of  Chairman  and  Managing  Director  cannot  be exercised by the same individual. 

The Board comprises ten members, nine of whom are elected or appointed by the holders  of  ordinary  shares  and  one,  the    Managing  Director,  is  an  executive director.  Collectively, the members of the Board must demonstrate a balance of skills and experience appropriate for the requirements of the business.
