A HEALTHY,
EFFICIENT AND SOLID GOVERNANCE SYSTEM

BANK OF AFRICA has established a highly robust and exemplary governance system to protect the long-term interests of all its stakeholders. The Group continues to meet the most stringent of standards when it comes to governance practices, as well as ensuring that it is fully compliant with domestic and international statutory requirements. Furthermore, given its strategic role within the economy, the Group is under an obligation to ensure that its operations are entirely secure and to adopt adequate control mechanisms.

As part of a process of ongoing improvement, BANK OF AFRICA’s governance system is underpinned by a number of decision-making and supervisory bodies as well as committees which are responsible for drawing up the Group’s main strategic and operational policies.

GOVERNANCE CHARTER

Consistent with its role as a responsible organisation with a strong emphasis on ethical standards, BANK OF AFRICA has adopted a Governance Charter, drawn up in accordance with Bank Al-Maghrib’s Directive 1/W/2014. This Charter defines the powers of each body, where those powers stop and how they interact. The Charter enables BANK OF AFRICA to organise more effectively the functioning and the decision-making processes of its most important decision-making bodies – the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, the Board of Directors and Corporate Governance.
