Bupa is managed in line with the corporate governance safeguards and commercial principles that would be expected to be found in a UK listed company.
Bupa has a majority of independent Non-Executive Directors, including an independent Chairman. Bupa takes corporate governance very seriously and is committed to meeting best practice where this is appropriate. The independent Non-Executive Directors currently outnumber Executive Directors by a ratio of three to one.
The Board supports the principles of corporate governance set out in the UK Corporate Governance Code published by the Financial Reporting Council in June 2010, and updated from time to time. Bupa has complied with the provisions set out in the 2016 Code throughout the year ended 31 December 2017.
We have a policy on Board Diversity, which was approved in February 2012.
Bupa's subsidiaries are supervised by external regulators, including in the UK the Financial Conduct Authority and the Care Quality Commission. Separate regulatory requirements apply to each market in which Bupa operates.
