Corporate governance

Good corporate governance is essential to sustaining successful companies’ growth. Gimv is keen to be exemplary in this respect. In December 2005, Gimv adopted a Corporate Governance Charter that details the key aspects of its corporate governance policy.

Belgian companies are legally required to formally justify the degree to which their corporate governance policies comply with the principles and best practice provisions of the Corporate Governance Code. Research has shown that Gimv complies with over 90% of the criteria set out in the code.

Specific information about Gimv's corporate governance practices is available in the Corporate Governance chapter of the Annual Report. This chapter contains information on appointments, remunerations and any conflicts of interest.
