As provided for in Finnish Companies Act, every Finnish limited liability company has its own Articles of Association. Articles of Association define, among other things, the business area of the company and the scopes of competences and general principles of division of powers between key corporate organs (i.e. general meeting, board of directors and managing director).
Sampo Group's general governance rests on the idea that Sampo plc, as the parent company of the Group, provides subsidiaries with a framework of general principles within which the parent company expects the subsidiaries to organize and carry out their businesses. These principles are manifested in Sampo Group's Code of Conduct, Risk Management Principles, Remuneration Principles and Compliance Principles, which form the core of Sampo Group's internal governance framework.
On the basis of and in compliance with the Group-wide framework, each subsidiary designs and implements a company-specific governance and risk management framework (including e.g. capitalization targets, profit targets, authorizations with risk limits, remuneration policies and other guidelines and instructions), which steers, limits and controls all operations, especially risk taking.
Sampo complies in full with the Finnish Corporate Governance Code 2020 approved by the Securities Market Association on 19 September 2019, effective from 1 January 2020 (the “CG Code 2020”). The Remuneration Report prepared in accordance with the new CG Code 2020 has to be published first time for the financial year starting on 1 January 2020. The Remuneration Statement prepared for the previous financial year, started on 1 January 2019, complies with the stipulations as regards a remuneration statement in the previous CG Code 2015.
The CG Code 2020 can be viewed in full on the website of the Securities Market Association at www.cgfinland.fi/en.
