The NatWest Holdings Limited Board (and the Boards of National Westminster Bank Plc and The Royal Bank of Scotland plc) comprises the directors of NatWest Group plc (with the exception of Frank Dangeard) and 3 additional independent directors.
The Double independent non-executive directors (‘DINEDs’) are an integral part of NatWest Group’s governance arrangements and are independent in two respects:
(i) independent of management as non-executives; and
(ii) independent of the rest of NatWest Group.
by virtue of their NWH Sub Group-only directorships.
The DINEDs play a critical role in NatWest Group’s ring-fencing governance structure, and are responsible for exercising appropriate oversight of the independence and effectiveness of the NWH Sub Group’s governance arrangements, including the ability of each board to take decisions independently.
The DINEDs attend NatWest Group plc Board meetings in an observer capacity.
