For us as a bank, governance is one of our most important areas. Our governance is clarified by means of policies and instructions that cover large parts of our business, and makes it possible for us to fulfil our objective of being a transparent and respected bank.

Governance at Bluestep Bank

For us, governance comprises a broad range of elements, such as our organisation, the responsibilities, roles and targets of management and employees, to the conducting of our business, risk management and our control environment. By ensuring proper internal management and controls, we can operationalise our business model, take care of our customers, and ensure regulatory compliance.

It is of the utmost importance that our management and employees understand and embrace the shared approach to governance, and we therefore review and clarify what governance actually means to Bluestep Bank as a bank.

Bluestep Bank's governance is clarified by means of a number of policies and instructions that cover diverse areas, such as sustainability, conflicts of interest, ethics, remuneration, complaints management, the granting of credit, outsourcing, risk management, capital management, regulatory compliance, processing of personal data, money laundering, information security and reporting.

A transparent bank

We strive to ensure we are a transparent bank, and we therefore make relevant policies, targets and results available to both our customers and to the market. We regard transparency in our approach to governance as an important part of Bluestep Bank's sustainability work, and in the second half of 2023 we will be publishing additional relevant policies, practical examples and other information on our website.
