The Board has established a number of committees to assist in the execution of its duties and to allow detailed consideration of important aspects of the business or complex issues. Each committee has its own written charter, which sets out its role and responsibilities, composition, structure, membership requirements and the manner in which the committee operates.

The Committee monitors compliance policies and reporting to ensure compliance with obligations imposed by the regulators, the Corporations Act (including compliance with laws relating to Managed Investment Schemes) and the Superannuation law. The Committee also monitors all accounting policies to ensure they comply with accepted accounting standards and practices.
The Remuneration Committee is comprised of the non-executive Chairman and the two other non-executive Directors. The Committee evaluates the Managing Director using criteria such as business performance, accomplishment of short and long-term strategic objectives and the development of management.
