Board Committees

Five permanent Board committees ensure the fiduciary effectiveness of GEPF through the active involvement of Board members in the Fund’s strategic agenda. The committees deal with benefits and administration, which includes communication and education matters, finance and audit, governance and legal, remuneration and human resources, and investment matters.

The Board approves the membership of each committee. Board committees have limited executive powers to ensure that the Board remains responsible and accountable for the management of the Fund. Each committee operates under approved terms of reference, which set out the requirements for committee membership, the chairperson, record keeping, standard of performance, compliance with policies, authority, delegation, quorum, duties and responsibilities, accountability, and term of office.
Committees are allowed, subject to the approval of the Board, to appoint independent professionals to offer required skills or expertise not present in the committee.
The Board consists of the following committees and their representatives:
