The resignations were directly attributable to the fallout from the banking Royal Commission which revealed that the behaviour of financial services organisation often did not meet community standards and expectations. In some cases, such as the AMP there appeared to be conduct that broke the law.The board is responsible for the actions and success of the corporation and hence the composition of the board would appear to be relevant to the corporation’s success. Ideally, directors are selected for board positions based on their technical and behavioural competencies. Boards often develop a skills matrix that sets out the broad set of competencies needed for the corporation to meet its aims. The expectation is that directors are appointed to fill or bolster various competencies required. In addition, the Corporations Act requires that all directors be financial literate i.e. they need to understand the financial drivers of the organisations they direct.The questions to be asked in this plenary session are:•Was the misconduct revealed by the banking Royal Commission caused by directors who did not understand the businesses they directed?•Who should be on the boards of complex financial services businesses•How do complex financial services businesses manage the need for diversity of skills on the board with the need for directors to understand the complexity of the businesses they direct.ABOUT THE ACTUARIES INSTITUTE:As the sole professional body for Members in Australia and overseas, the Actuaries Institute represents the interests of the profession to government, business and the community.
