Podcast - How Boards Can Work Best - LGIM Talks
Good governance is crucial to all boards, whether they oversee a FTSE 100 multinational, a multi-billion pound pension scheme or a national charity. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to how boards should be run but through Sacha Sadan (Head of Stewardship at LGIM) and his team's extensive experience in corporate engagement, they've learned that there are plenty of ways to evolve and enhance effectiveness. We know that pressures from executives, stakeholders, as well as the day-to-day oversight of the company or scheme, the role of a non-executive board member has never been more demanding. The increase in regulation and complexity of modern defined benefit and defined contribution schemes has concurrently increased the workload of pension trustees. This week's episode looks at some of the best practices the Corporate Governance team have seen in place and the key areas which could help boards manage their many responsibilities.
