About LTG: The board of Directors

The Board is responsible for directing, providing appropriate advice, and supervising the Company’s business strategy, and is responsible to shareholders for the Group’s financial and operational performance as well as its risk management. The Board delegates the development and implementation of Group strategy and day-to-day management issues to the Executive Directors.

The Board is made up of three Executive Directors, and three Non-executive Directors. The Board considers that the Non-executive Directors bring an independent judgement to bear, and is satisfied that between the Directors, it has an effective and appropriate balance of independence on the one hand, and knowledge of the Company on the other, to enable it to discharge its duties and responsibilities effectively.
