In addition to a well-functioning global corporate governance infrastructure, LeasePlan is subject to supervision by competent supervisory authorities worldwide. In the Netherlands, we are supervised by among others the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and the Dutch Central Bank (DNB). In Ireland, where LeasePlan Insurance is located, the Central Bank of Ireland (CBI) supervises the insurance activities of the company. Several other Group companies are being supervised by relevant local supervisory authorities.
Corporate governance framework
LeasePlan has a well-defined and well-structured corporate governance infrastructure in place which supports its business model and strategy.
