Corporate Governance

Promoting good governance and being compliant is not just about mitigating risk - it is about ensuring the long-term sustainability and success of our operation.

Our corporate governance standards are guided by government legislation and regulations, industry standards and internal policies and procedures.

Being essentially about ethical leadership, the board and executive management endeavour to stimulate positive changes in the perceptions, attitudes and values of all stakeholders by fostering long-term, sustainable relationships that do not compromise the natural environment and the livelihood of future generations, and which ensures a quality experience for our clients through independent financial advice, investment excellence and service efficiency.

Financial services in South Africa is guided by strict regulations to ensure product reliability and legislative compliance on the part of Financial Service Providers. At BCI we believe that stringent compliance processes protect our stakeholders and safeguard good business practices.

Whilst ultimate responsibility of understanding and overseeing the management of compliance resides with the board, BCI’s compliance function resides with a dedicated compliance team who monitor adherence to legislative and regulatory requirements as prescribed in the relevant legislation governing the financial services industry.
