Course Summary:

This full day course is a practical, hands-on workshop for directors (both Executive and in particular non-Executive) and senior management of Irish regulated credit, financial, insurance and reinsurance services firms, including investment funds.

Course Details: 

“The role of director is one that we have identified as an absolutely critical element …, responsibility for the proper management and control of a financial service provider and the integrity of its systems now rests squarely with its board of directors and senior management.”

(Patrick Neary, former CEO Financial Regulator)

 “… 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)

"Stronger remedies are needed here to shake up prevailing corporate governance practices by injecting some fresh blood and setting more exacting standards. This will improve the reputation of Ireland as an international financial centre by knocking on the head concerns about too cosy corporate governance practices."

(Matthew Elderfield, Head of Financial Regulation, Central Bank of Ireland)
