On appointing Shonaid Jemmett-Page as an Independent Non-Executive Director, the Nomination and Governance Committee carefully considered her time commitments, investor guidelines and voting policies and their application on Shonaid’s current directorships. The Committee also reviewed in detail the planned changes to her portfolio and overall capacity, and in particular Shonaid’s Chair roles on two investment trusts, which have a lesser time commitment than a listed company Non-Executive Director role. Following the review, the Committee considered Shonaid to have sufficient time to dedicate to her role as an Independent Non-Executive Director of Aviva.
