Corporate Governance Structure
At SOFIPA, as a financial entity, we understand the fundamental importance of having solid corporate governance for the success and sustainability of our organization. Our Corporate Governance structure is designed to ensure transparency, ethics, and responsibility in all our operations and strategic decisions.
as the Supreme Authority
The Shareholders Assembly represents the supreme decision-making body in SOFIPA. In their regular meetings, our shareholders actively participate in key decisions, such as the election of the Board of Directors and the approval of policies and strategies essential for the company´s future. We value and respect the importance of our shareholders participation, as their voice is a fundamental pillar for the growth and development of our organization.
The Board of Directors is another key component of our Corporate Governance. As the second most important body, its fundamental role is the management of the company and the supervision of executive management. It consists of independent directors and representatives of the shareholders, ensuring balanced and objective decision-making, always looking out for the interests of all parties involved in the company. Moreover, the Board actively promotes the adoption of best practices and the safeguarding of our business integrity culture.
The Company Commissioner plays a key role in our governance framework. As an independent figure, its mission is to ensure the transparency and legality of our operations. Reporting directly to the Shareholders Assembly, the Commissioner conducts regular audits to ensure compliance with current regulations and preserve the integrity of SOFIPA.
In pursuit of effective governance, we have established 6 support committees to the Board of Directors, each with specific functions and responsibilities:
The General Manager plays a crucial role in our Corporate Governance structure.
