The management and control system that we have adopted is the so called "traditional" system. This governance model has proven itself to be suited of managing the business efficiently, while ensuring effective controls, and thus guaranteeing the sound and prudent management of a complex global banking group like the UniCredit Group. Such governance model is based on the existence of two corporate bodies appointed by the Shareholders' Meeting: a Board of Directors and a Board of Statutory Auditors. Legal accounting supervision is entrusted by the Shareholders' Meeting to an external audit firm, on proposal of the Board of Statutory Auditors.
Also in line with the provisions of the Corporate Governance Code, the Board of Directors has established five Committees, vested with research, advisory and proposal-making powers:
- the Internal Controls & Risks Committee
- the Corporate Governance & Nomination Committee
- the ESG Commitee
- the Remuneration Committee
- the Related-Parties Committee.
