The Board of Directors determines on the one hand (i) the strategy and objectives of the company concerned, (ii) the risk policy, including the general risk tolerance limits and (iii) the organisation for the provision or performance of investment services and activities and ancillary services and (iv) the integrity policy. At the same time the Board of Directors supervises the activities and regularly assesses the effectiveness of the governance system.

Corporate governance includes setting the company's objectives, establishing effective governance and internal control, recognising and taking due account of the interests of all members of the company, and conducting the business in accordance with the principles of sound and prudent management, in accordance with legal and regulatory provisions.

The Executive Committee of Argenta Bank- en Verzekeringsgroep stipulates the limits within which the various group companies can perform their activities and exercise their responsibilities.
Sustainability was embedded even more strongly within the organisation. In 2021 the Executive Committee appointed the CEO as Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO). His mission is to give sustainability a prominent place at all levels of Argenta. The CSO is assisted by the sustainability manager, the Group Sustainability Committee and the Investment Exclusion Committee, which contribute to the effective implementation of the policy.
