European DataWarehouse believes that high standards of corporate governance are critical to the achievement of its business objectives and, in turn, the creation and protection of shareholders’ interests, as well as those of its customers, employees and the general public, through effective oversight, risk management and transparency.
Operating as a market infrastructure and designated as a securitization data provider by Eurosystem, the monetary authority of the Eurozone, European DataWarehouse aims to increase transparency and restore confidence in the ABS market. The company is governed by its 17 shareholders, who are a mix of market participants including large corporations, professional organisations, and banks .
The shareholders appoint a Supervisory Board. The Supervisory Board consists of 13 members. It is responsible for strategy and monitoring EDW´s operations. In addition, European DataWarehouse has a strict, transparent and non-discriminatory pricing model set by a Pricing Committee, which consists of eight representatives of the ABS industry.
The Supervisory Board oversees the company´s remuneration and nomination policies, the enforcement of the internal controls system articulated through three lines of defense and compliance with applicable laws and regulations and adherence to ethical and conduct standards, including sustainability and social responsibility.
Our shareholders deem this corporate governance system to be the most suitable to combine efficient management with effective controls while enhancing the company’s value.
