Directors

Yuanta Financial Holdings has a set Director Selection Process which lays out in detail the qualifications and abilities expected of board members, how candidates are nominated and elected, how votes are tallied, electoral matters, and how elected candidates are informed. Additionally, in consideration of the makeup of the Board of Directors, no more than half of the directors may have a spousal or second-degree familial relationship with any other director(s). The Director Selection Process lays out the skills directors are expected to have in nine areas, including operational decision-making, business management, crisis management, industry knowledge, international market observation, and risk management. The members of the board are also 100% equipped with the knowledge, skills, and personal qualities needed to carry out their duties.

Procedures of Director Election
Independent Directors

Yuanta’s director (and independent director) elections have a set nomination system in which shareholders holding 1% or more of the Company’s total shares, as well as the board of directors must submit a list of director nominations. After being reviewed by the board to ensure that candidates meet all necessary conditions, a final list of nominees is submitted to the shareholders meeting for approval. Independent directors make up 31% of board members, with their role and functions regarding both the Board and the Company’s operations are clearly laid out in the “Scope of Duties for Independent Directors”.

In addition to attending regular board and Audit Committee meetings, each independent director also meets with corporate leadership and both departmental and office managers to go over issues regarding corporate governance or business development in hopes of ensuring maximum effectiveness through the harnessing of the skills and assistance of management. In order to spur operational efficiency and business decisions & plans, the Company not only provides each independent director with their own dedicated office and equipment, but also a personal secretary to assist in the timely administration of affairs. Additionally, independent directors personally visit the Company several times each week, investing considerable time reading through meeting minutes and making appointments with managers to gain a deeper knowledge of the Company's financial, accounting, auditing, and risk control affairs and the overall situation of the Company.

Board of Directors and Functional Committees Performance Evaluation Process

In order to improve the performance of its Board of Directors, Yuanta Financial Holdings has established the “Guidelines for Self-Assessment for Board of Directors and Functional Committees”. Each year, by means of a questionnaire, the directors independently fill out an assessment. Additionally, at least once every three years, the Company commissions an external, independent organization or academic experts to conduct a review of the board and functional committees and draft an improvement plan, the results of which are then reported to the board as a whole.

We entrusted Taiwan Corporate Governance Association to conduct the 2018 external performance evaluation of Yuanta’s Board of Directors in December, 2018. The Association looked at eight major aspects: 1) the composition of the board of directors; 2) guidance from the board of directors; 3) authorization of the board of directors; 4) supervision from the board of directors; 5) communication of the board of directors; 6) internal control and risks management; 7) self-discipline of the board of directors, and 8) other areas (such as board meetings and supporting systems), and evaluated the performance of the board of directors via questionnaires and due diligence

Results of the overall evaluation are summarized as follows:

  1. Your company (Yuanta FHC) elevated the Integrity Committee to the Sustainable Committee in Nov 2018, demonstrating your commitment and undertaking of corporate social responsibility and sustainability-related issues.
  2. Your company recognized the value of independent directors and valued their constructive opinions. The following examples showed that the company has actively responded to the opinions of individual independent directors.
    .Elevating the Integrity Committee to Sustainable Committee
    .Changing the appointment of the auditing supervisor of an important subsidiary as advised.
  3. Your company has set up a performance evaluation scheme for the board of directors and conducts evaluation every year. You also entrust an independent third-party to assist in the evaluation once every three years. This demonstrates the board of directors’ culture of accountability to stakeholders and sets an outstanding benchmark for the company’s management.
  4. Your company values the introduction of professional directors and provides corresponding support, encouraging and assisting professional directors to contribute with their expertise.

We will use the evaluation results as a reference to continue enhancing competency of the board of directors.

Guidelines for the Selection, Services, and Assessment of Investment Directors and Supervisors

To facilitate proper management of investment matters, the Company has set the “Guidelines for the Selection, Services, and Assessment of Investment Directors and Supervisors”. This is aimed at improving coordination between the Company and directors & supervisors involved in investment matters, and protecting our investments through stronger management.

When directors or supervisors are assigned to investment matters by the Company, their qualifications and concurrent service should be verified as being in compliance with relevant legislation through the “Eligibility Checklist for Directors and Supervisors” and the “Stakeholder System Search Results”. The person being appointed, the Company to which they are being appointed, and any others directly involved, should be made familiar with this in order to facilitate declarations to the competent authorities and other matters related to the task at hand.
