The Dutch Banking Code, which came into effect in 2010, required Supervisory Board members to follow a formal program of lifelong learning. At FMO, this began in 2010 and has been continued and expanded since. There were five sessions in 2012.
The program of lifelong learning was also used as a starting point in the preparation of the 2013-2016 strategy. In 2012, the Supervisory Board’s learning sessions were strongly focused on FMO’s new strategy, which was finalized last year.
Last year, Supervisory Board members participated in learning sessions on the subjects including trends in bank funding profiles, information technology, investment management, compliance and the 2011 OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
