The Board of Directors (BoD) must meet the fit and proper criteria, maintain a strategic oversight on assurance functions, have an understanding of risk management functions and should have the ability to seek / extract vital information. It should have the capacity to identify emerging risks and address control & process issues that would enhance its function and credibility. Furthermore, the BoD needs to be aware and keep track of emerging trends, have an efficient feedback mechanism and the ability to accommodate divergent views.
