Sampo plc has confirmed a Diversity Policy for the Board of Directors which aims to ensure that the Board of Directors possesses the requisite knowledge and experience in the social, business, and cultural conditions of the regions and markets in which the main activities of the Group are carried out. The policy states that when electing the Board of Directors, a broad set of qualities and competencies are sought, and it is recognized that diversity, including age, gender, geographical provenance, and educational and professional background, are important factors to take into consideration.
The Sampo plc Board Diversity Policy states that both genders shall be represented on the Board of Directors. The Nomination and Remuneration Committee considers gender equality and ensures that both genders are always represented on the Board of Directors, and it has as its target a share of at least 37.5 per cent of the total number of members for both genders.
The Nomination and Remuneration Committee has during the drafting of its proposal for the Annual General Meeting held on 18 May 2022 assessed that due to the strategic development of Sampo Group, the composition of Sampo plc’s Board of Directors shall in addition to the current knowledge emphasise knowledge of the P&C market and the UK’s geographical market. Thus, it was proposed to the Annual General Meeting held on 18 May 2022 to increase the number of Board members to nine members. As a consequence, the share of women on the Board decreased to 33.3 per cent and the composition of the Board does temporarily not fulfil the target of each gender being represented by at least 37.5 per cent of the members of the Board. The Board of Directors remains committed to reaching its target of having both genders represented in the Board by at least 37.5 per cent and will continue its endeavours to reach the target when proposing candidates for Board membership next time. The average tenure of Board members was 5.7 years according to the situation on the date of the Annual General Meeting 18 May 2022.
