Approach to governance
As the Company's primary listing (known in the UK as a premium listing) is on the London Stock Exchange, the Company abides by the UK Corporate Governance Code 2014, but also has appropriate regard to governance expectations in other territories where its shares are listed. The text of the UK Corporate Governance Code 2014 is available on the Financial Reporting Council's website at www.frc.org.uk.
Remuneration Technical Update - May 2018

Governance relationship with Nedbank
The governance relationship with our majority-owned subsidiary, Nedbank Group Limited (Nedbank), recognises the latter's own governance framework as a separately-listed entity on the JSE Limited and the fact that it has minority shareholders. Old Mutual plc has a relationship agreement with Nedbank that sets out the Company's requirements and expectations as its majority shareholder. A copy of the relationship agreement between Nedbank and Old Mutual Limited, which will become effective following the Managed Separation of Old Mutual plc, can be found here.
Our major South African public subsidiary companies are subject to applicable local governance expectations, including those contained in King III and, for Nedbank, the JSE's listings requirements. In addition, given that we have two 'domestically systematically important financial institutions' - Old Mutual Emerging Markets and Nedbank - we are actively considering how we may need to adapt the future governance of our South African operations as South Africa migrates to a 'Twin Peaks' regulation model similar to the UK's.
