Governance

Governance

 

Ethical conduct is of paramount importance at Eurobank. We were one of the first banks in Luxembourg to sign the ICMA Private Banking Wealth Management Charter of Quality. In doing so, we pledged our commitment to the three main principles on which the charter is founded: integrity, transparency and professionalism.

Our governance bodies and practices comply with the strictest requirements of the European Union and the European legislative and regulatory framework.

Board of Directors and Authorised Management

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the bank. It ensures business continuity, oversees management and protects the long-term interests of clients, employees and shareholders. Authorised Management executes day-to- day business according to the strategies and guiding principles laid down by the Board of Directors. They ensure compliance with the relevant regulatory frameworks and safeguard the bank’s solvency, liquidity and long-term financial interests.
