Corporate Governance

ALL STATEMENTS IN THIS CORPORATE GOVERNANCE REPORT REFLECT THE SITUATION THAT PREVAILED ON 15 FEBRUARY 2018.

As an unlisted company, HSH Nordbank has recognised the German Corporate Governance Code (GCGC) voluntarily since 2005. The Management Board and the Supervisory Board of HSH Nordbank expressly support the contents and objectives of the GCGC. Corporate governance at HSH Nordbank is also principally based on the provisions of the German Stock Corporation Act, the German Banking Act and internal rules such as the Articles of Association and the rules of procedure that apply to the Management Board and the Supervisory Board as well as HSH Nordbank‘s Code of Conduct. By presenting the Bank‘s system of corporate governance and control and transparent reporting on conformity to the rules of the Code, we aim to strengthen the confidence that investors, clients and employees and the general public have in HSH Nordbank.
