Corporate Governance

The Corporate Governance unit covers the compliance aspect of the Bank’s corporate governance framework and governance requirements, externally, with respect to the laws relevant and applicable to BPI as a bank and as a publicly listed company such as the Corporation Code, and the rules and regulations of the Bangko Sentral, SEC, PDIC and the PSE, and internally, with respect to the BPI’s By-Laws, Manual on Corporate Governance, Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, and corporate governance-related policies such as Insider Trading, Whistleblower and Related Party Transactions policies.


The Corporate Governance unit also monitors compliance with respect to the Bank’s participation in regional corporate governance initiatives jointly sponsored by the SEC and ICD such as the ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard. Working closely with the board-level Audit and Corporate Governance Committees, this unit ensures that the Bank’s corporate governance foundations can withstand rigorous tests and demands of more stringent supervision, regulation, disclosure, and bank governance best practices.
