Our Board

Our Board is responsible for managing our affairs. This includes establishing our corporate governance strategy, defining our risk appetite, monitoring our performance, making decisions on capital usage and dividend recommendations to our Minister, the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment.

Our Board always ensures that a Board member does not participate in discussions where there is, or may be, a conflict between their own interests and those of our organisation or one of our customers. We maintain a register updated with the disclosed interests of all Board Members.

Our Minister is responsible for our organisation and is represented on the Board by the government member, the Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs (or their alternate). Our Board consists of our Managing Director & CEO, seven Non-Executive Directors and a government member.

Board members and our Managing Director & CEO are appointed under the Export Finance and Insurance Act 1991 (Cth). The Non-Executive Directors and Government member are appointed by our Minister.

Our Minister provides guidance to our Board through a Statement of Expectations. Our Board responds with a Statement of Intent confirming how we will operate to meet those expectations.
