Given the fields within which we operate, Arqaam Capital is
committed to the highest standards of Corporate Governance. Arqaam
Capital has elected to adopt a Corporate Governance structure which
is largely based upon the recommendations of the UK´s Combined Code
on Corporate Governance issued by the Financial Reporting Council,
with appropriate amendments. Arqaam Capital´s Corporate Governance
structure may be summarised as follows:
Board of Directors - The supreme governing body
of Arqaam Capital. The Board of Directors reviews Arqaam Capital's
strategies and policies and all important decisions are reserved
for the Board. The Board of Directors is assisted in its task by
