Role of the Supervisory Board
The Supervisory Board is a key element of the corporate governance system, with overall responsibility for the activities of Moscow Exchange.
The Supervisory Board is accountable to the General Meeting of Shareholders: members of the Supervisory Board are elected by the General Meeting of Shareholders, and their powers may be terminated at any time by the General Meeting of Shareholders.
The terms of reference of the Supervisory Board are established in the Charter and are clearly separated from those of the executive bodies that manage the day-to-day activities of the Exchange. The Supervisory Board:
- determines the vision, mission and strategy of the Exchange;
- is responsible for strategic oversight of the Exchange and long-term sustainable development;
- establishes strategic goals and key performance indicators.
When developing Moscow Exchange’s strategy, the Supervisory Board takes into account shareholders’ vision for the development of the Exchange. The Supervisory Board considers queries and requests from shareholders and investors and, if necessary, gives appropriate instructions to senior management.
The work schedule approved by the Supervisory Board includes the main activities of the Exchange, which are correlated with the strategic planning cycle and ongoing business cycles. When preparing the work schedule, proposals of members of the Supervisory Board and senior executives on priority issues are taken into account.
Information on the activities of the Supervisory Board, including its composition, meetings held and work of its committees, is disclosed on the Exchange’s website in the form of press releases and corporate action notices, as well as the Annual Report, which ensures transparency of the activities of the Supervisory Board.
