The mission of the Board of Directors, together with the Executive Board and their advisory bodies is protecting and valuing Itaúsa's equity, in accordance with the provisions of its Bylaws, and representing the interests of stockholders and other agents with which it relates.
As provided for in the Bylaws, the Board of Directors is composed of three to 12 effective members, elected by the General Stockholders’ Meeting, and will have one Chairman and from one to three Vice Chairmen chosen by the Board Members, and it is incumbent upon the General Stockholders’ Meeting to previously establish the number of members that will compose this body.
An essential player in Itaúsa's governance system, it is incumbent upon the Fiscal Council to supervise the behavior of management members, review and opine on the financial statements for the year, and reporting its conclusions to the Company’s stockholders, in compliance with its legal and statutory duties.
The Fiscal Council operates on a permanent basis, and may be composed of at least three and at the most five members, and equal number of alternate members, all of whom elected annually by stockholders at the General Meeting. Among its members, there are representatives elected by minority and preferred stockholders. Furthermore, it is incumbent upon the Fiscal Council to assess significant operations as provided for in Itaúsa's Transactions with Related Parties Policy, and report them to the Company’s Board of Directors.
The Advisory Committees to the Board are advisory bodies, responsible for advising the Board in the analysis of strategic matters within its competence, with the aim of providing greater efficiency to this collegiate body. In addition, the committees assist the Board in carrying out its legal and statutory functions.
Itaúsa currently has four Committees: Governance and People Committee, Sustainability and Risk Committee, Strategy and New Businesses Committee and Related-Party Committee. These bodies are composed of members appointed annually by the Company’s Board of Directors.
The Executive Board may be composed of three to ten members, with this number of members fixed and the members elected by the Board of Directors within ten business days from the date the General Stockholders’ Meeting electing the Board.
Members of the Board of Directors may be appointed to compose up to one-third of the Executive Board’s positions. However, in line with good corporate governance practices, the positions of Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer (or the company’s main executive) may not be concurrently held by the same person. Bylaws also set forth that no officers aged over 75 will be elected.
Itaúsa’s Executive Board counts on the advisory of seven non-statutory councils, composed of managers of the Company, external members and specialists. The members of these committees hold one-year terms of office, which may be renewed, and remain in office until the first meeting of the Board of Directors that elects the Executive Board.The composition of these councils and the members’ mini curriculum are available in the 12.7/8 item of the Reference Form.
