We are thrilled and immensely proud to announce that Aspida Advisory Services Limited is the first organisation to receive the prestigious Board Performance Review Accreditation from the Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland.
This landmark achievement is a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence, transparency, and best governance practices. We have always strived to set new standards, and this accreditation is a recognition of the dedication and hard work of our entire team.
In any external board evaluations that we perform, we work with the board members to produce an effective review that aims to provide added value to the board in the form of useful recommendations to demonstrate compliance and to improve the governance framework.
We tailor our approach and provide self assessment questionnaires, conduct interviews of the board, the Company Secretary and other key service providers, observe board meetings and review the company against the relevant code of corporate governance. We have researched and utilised the latest market information and guidance from various sources including The Institute of Directors, The Financial Reporting Council, The Association of Investment Companies, The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (“ICSA”) and the financial services regulators (Financial Conduct Authority, Guernsey Financial Services Commission and Jersey Financial Services Commission).
We are unique in the market not only due to our Chartered Governance Accreditation, we also have detailed knowledge on listed companies and boards as we maintain a database of over 170 investment companies listed on the LSE, SFM, AIM, ISE, Euronext and TISE to provide peer comparisons. We have undertaken assignments in all of the areas above and over the years we have extended our services to include charities and even utility companies.
The team are always looking for innovative ways to assist directors and businesses and in 2011 created the Non-Executive Directors Forum. This forum has since gone on to become a leading independent body looking after the interests of directors involved in the finance sector and has been a significant success being recognised by the regulator as the industry body for the NED community.
