Board Attendance

GT Capital board meetings are held regularly and dates of the regular meetings are set before the start of the financial year. When important matters are on the agenda, such as issues that will have a significant impact on the character of the Corporation, the quorum requirement is two thirds (2/3) of all the directors. However, as far as practicable, the board secretariat ensures that 2/3 of all the directors are present for each meeting. The Board met seven (7) times in 2016.
