The Board and Supervisors
Structure of the Board and Supervisors
The Board of Directors and Board of Supervisors serve to formulate strategy, carry out bank policies, and execute and supervise business activities. The Directors, who number fifteen at least and twenty-one at most (including four independent directors) ,and Supervisors, who number five, are separately appointed by HNFHC.
The Directors among themselves elect five Managing Directors (including one independent director), who elect a Chairman one another. Internally, the Chairman is the head of the Shareholders' Meeting, Board of Directors and Board of Managing Directors, while, externally, the Chairman represents the Bank.
A Board of Directors meeting is held once every three months. In case of emergency or if more than half of the Directors so request, an Extraordinary Meeting may be held. When the Board of Directors is not in session, the Managing Directors shall perform the functions of the Board of Directors by way of a meeting convened and presided by the Chairman of the Board at any time. Under the Board of Directors, we established the Auditing Department with Chief Auditing Officer being the department head responsible for all auditing related business.
The Board of Supervisors is formed by five Supervisors, who elect a Standing Supervisor one another. The Standing Supervisor is resident in the Bank, where he or she is charged with execution of supervisory duties.
