Shawbrook is a specialist UK savings and lending bank founded in 2011 to serve the needs of SMEs and individuals in the UK with a range of lending and saving products. We are a growing UK specialist bank that challenges the conventional approach of the mainstream banks, with our thoughtful and good-sense approach to the way we do business. As at 31st December 2020 our total lending reached £7.1 billion and we have now raised more than £6.9 billion in deposits from both personal and business customers.

Corporate Governance

The Board is committed to the highest standards of corporate governance and we adhere to all elements of the UK Corporate Governance Code. The Board has responsibility for ensuring that the Group is managed effectively and in the best interests of its shareholders, customers, employees and other stakeholders (including regulators), and its principal banking subsidiary, Shawbrook Bank Limited. Following the change of ownership of the Group, the commitment to retaining Board and Committee independence was formalised by the adoption of a Framework Agreement and Memorandum of Understanding governing the ongoing interactions between the Board, Executive management and the Shareholder. These have formalised governance arrangements to ensure that appropriate challenge and independence remains, so supporting the interests of investors, customers, employees, the regulators and other key stakeholders. The Board operates within a formal schedule of matters reserved which is reviewed regularly, which can be found under ‘Constitutional and other Governance documents’ in the drop down list below. Additionally, the Board delegates specific powers for some matters to Board Committees, with the outputs from each Committee meeting reported to the Board regularly, thus ensuring the Board maintains the necessary oversight. More detail on the Committees and their work is described in the separate Committee sections in the drop down list below.

An externally facilitated Board effectiveness review will be undertaken during 2018 to further ensure the effectiveness of the framework. An effectiveness review carried out in 2016 provided confirmation that the Board has provided effective oversight of the business, and has been highly engaged both in developing robust risk policies and frameworks and in guiding longer term plans and strategies.

  • Sally-Ann Hibberd and David Gagie resigned from the Board on 31 January 2019
  • John Callender was appointed to the Board in March 2018, he brings extensive financial services experience gained through his executive and non-executive careers.
  • The Board was strengthened with the appointment of Cedric Dubourdieu. Cedric was appointed to the Board as a Non-Independent Non-Executive Director on 5 September 2017 and has a wealth of experience with close to 20 years of private equity experience.

The Board currently consists of 9 members, namely the Chairman, five Independent Non-Executive Directors, two Executive Directors and two Institutional Directors. 

The Non-Executive Directors have strong and relevant experience across all aspects of banking and specifically have relevant skills in financial management, regulatory, credit assessment and pricing, liability management and conduct matters. To ensure the Board continues to have an appropriate balance of skills, these skill sets are reviewed annually through the completion of a skills matrix which is considered by the Nomination Committee and the Board.
