Robust risk management and governance structure

The current risk management and governance structure operated by Pollen Street Capital is based upon the three lines of defence and has been designed to deliver a robust framework for consistent risk assessment and to manage all aspects of risk, tailored to the activities of the Group.

The governance structure of Pollen Street Capital is by way of committees and is designed to ensure that senior management has adequate oversight and control of the Group’s activities. The effectiveness of the governance framework is considered by senior management on an on-going basis, such that in the event that a material deficiency in the control environment or Risk Management Framework is identified, it shall be addressed without undue delay. Group Exco, or any of the other committees within the structure, can be convened on an ad-hoc basis in order to address any issues identified.

Pollen Street Capital has a transparent and open risk-management culture which encourages and facilitates clear communication and challenge. The governance structure below forms a core part of this culture, which is demonstrated to our clients and stakeholders through the good conduct of our personnel.
