Board and Governance

Our Corporate Governance framework is defined by our Articles of Incorporation, By-Laws, and Manual on Corporate Governance and takes into account the nature, size, complexity, business activities, and requirements of the Bank as well as its group operations.

We ensure that our banking practices, memorialized in BPI’s board and committee charters and internal operating manuals, are not only reflective of the integrity and ethics that defines the Bank’s decision making, conduct and behavior as a matter of culture, but, more so, are consistent with statutory laws, rules and regulations of our esteemed regulatory bodies: the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (“BSP”), Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”), Anti-Money Laundering Council (“AMLC”), and Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (“PDIC”) among others.

Our Corporate Governance policy is to ensure the responsible stewardship and value-driven management and control of the Bank, that through the guidance of our Board of Directors, all employees including the Board and Management, live up to the Bank’s Credo wherein independent business judgment and core values of fairness, accountability, and transparency are primary in every interaction and transaction with all of our stakeholders, including shareholders, customers, employees, regulators, and the broader community. Our Board is committed to establishing and maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance.
