    Non- Executive Director Information Hub

As a non-executive director (NED), you are tasked with providing independent oversight and constructive challenge to the executive directors of the companies upon whose boards you serve. You have a critical role to play to ensure the proper running of the company and, therefore, the larger economy.

We recognise how important it is for you to be informed about developments taking place in the macroeconomic environment that your business interests are influenced by, whether globally or locally. Through this information hub our priority is to bring you clear perspectives on trends shaping the sectors you operate in, facilitating worthwhile conversations with leading experts and unpacking interesting topics.
