Course Summary:

This half day course is a practical, hands-on workshop for directors and senior management of Irish regulated credit, financial, insurance and reinsurance services firms, including investment funds.  It details their responsibilities and requirements under Irish Corporate Governance rules and regulations and explains how to organise your corporate structure in line with law and recommendations from the Central Bank.  With our experience and qualifications we will provide insightful and practical guidance on how to successfully implement a positive corporate governance strategy in financial and insurance entities.

Course Details: 

“… our reliance on the boards and management of credit institutions, as part of our principles based regulation, to meet their corporate governance and risk management responsibilities was misplaced.”

(Jim Farrell, Chairman Financial Regulator)

This will improve the reputation of Ireland as an international financial centre by knocking on the head concerns about too cosy corporate governance practices."
