It is Greencape's intention to comply with all applicable laws and regulatory policies, and meet Australian best practice as it applies to a boutique fund manager.
This commitment to the way Greencape conduct their business is intended to ensure that they provide high quality services and minimise adverse impacts to their clients and key stakeholders of the business.
Greencape's Board has adopted this philosophy and for this reason, it has endorsed this Governance, Risk and Compliance Framework (GRC Framework). Each Director, Officer and Employee must read and comply with this GRC Framework and review any updates provided to them. The GRC Framework sets out Greencape's policies as well as the broad procedural controls, monitoring and reporting that is in place to ensure compliance with these obligations.
- Greencape outline their general approach to active ownership policy and engagement through thier ESG, Proxy Voting, Conflict of Interest, Inside Information and Fraud and Corruption Prevention and Management policies.
Greencape’s Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Framework articulates how processes are designed to occur, including monitoring, oversight and reporting to the Board. Where there is a breakdown in a process, it is expected to be raised and managed in accordance with the Incidents and Breach process, including reporting to the Board.
An additional layer of oversight is provided through the attendance of the Fidante Nominee Director at each board meeting, and in preparation for the Board meeting Fidante Risk & Compliance meet with and prepare in conjunction with Greencape’s Compliance Manager the compliance-related board papers.
GRC Framework will be reviewed and amended as necessary, such as if the nature of our business changes or any applicable regulations change. In addition, the policies within the GRC Framework are subject to periodic review as per A.1.2.3 Policy Review Cycle (page A-3).
The Board must approve all material amendments to the GRC Framework. When material changes are made to the GRC Framework, these must be communicated to impacted Staff.
