Lead Independent Director

In line with the guidelines established by the Corporate Governance Code for Listed Companies, as the Chairman of the Board of Directors is also the majority shareholder of La Scogliera S.p.A. and thus controls Banca IFIS, the Board of Directors has designated an independent Director as Lead Independent Director. The latter has the task of being the point of reference and coordination for requests and contributions of (non-executive and in particular independent) Directors to improve Board operations, also ensuring that information flows between Directors are constant and effective. 

The Lead Independent Director has the power to call, when deeming it appropriate or at the request of other Directors, specific meetings solely for independent Directors for significant matters relating to Board operations and/to company operations in general. 

On 30 April 2013, the Board of Directors nominated Mr. Giuseppe Benini as Lead Independent Director for the 3-year period running 2013-2015.
