Our Governance Structure.

CM Ltd’s strategic direction is set by our Board of Directors, which is comprised of our senior leadership team as well as a number of representatives from our parent companies SMBC and Nikko Tokyo. The Board takes overall responsibility for the leadership and control of CM Ltd and ensures that we are complying with our legal and regulatory obligations. It also provides independent oversight and challenge of the executive management function to ensure that business plans and strategies and the shareholders’ interests are appropriately taken into account.

The Executive Committee supports the CEO and has full power and authority to make decisions on all issues, except for those matters which are reserved for the Board or the other Committees listed below. Its principal focus is the implementation of the business strategies and plans set by the Board.

The Risk and Compliance Committee oversees all matters related to observance of the risk appetite, material transactions, key risks and future risk strategy, and oversees the firm's compliance-related activities.

The Audit Committee handles matters concerned with both the internal and external auditing process, and provides independent review of the financial reporting process and disclosure.

The Nominations Committee is responsible for the oversight of the selection and appointment of the Board of Directors and other members of senior management, and for evaluating the performance of Board members to ensure that they continue to maintain the required skills, knowledge and experience.

The Remuneration Committee reviews and approves CM Ltd’s remuneration policies, processes and proposals for senior management and material risk takers.
