Corporate Secretary
The functions of Corporate Secretary through Legal & Compliance Department and directly accountable to the President Director has effectively supported the implementation of GCG in the Company.

Implementation of Internal Control System
The management of the Company collectively has responsibility and accountability for setting the organization’s objectives, defining strategies to achieve those objectives, and establishing governance structures and processes to best manage the risks in accomplishing these objectives through the implementation of an effective and continuous Internal Control System. This effective and continuous Internal Control System by management and Internal Audit unit of the Company is through the implementation of a “three lines of defense” model.

In general, the “three lines of defense” model distinguishes amongst three groups involved in effective risk management; there are: i) Functions that own and manage risks, ii) Functions that oversee risks, iii) Functions that provide independent assurance. The Company’s “three lines of defense” model is as follows:

  1. First line of defense – Business Units
    Businesses are accountable for the risks within their unit including the day-to-day management of the risks and related controls. They are responsible for ensuring their business strategies align with the Company’s risk-taking philosophy, risk appetite and culture, for thoroughly evaluating and managing risk exposures consistent with our enterprise risk policies and standards of practice, and for delivering returns commensurate with the level of risk assumed. They are supported by global risk managers who are responsible for the design and execution of risk mitigation practices that are consistent with the Company’s policies and specific risk management strategies.
  2. Second line of defense – Risk Management, Actuarial, Finance, Compliance (“the group”)
    The group provides independent oversight of risk-taking and risk mitigation activities. Because Manulife is a global company, the group has access to all corporate risk policies and other corporate functional areas such as corporate risk management, corporate actuarial, corporate finance, global compliance, and divisional risk officers to support the group’s independent oversight.
  3. Third line of defense – Internal Audit
    Internal Audit provides independent analysis of whether controls are effective and appropriate relative to the risk inherent in the business, and whether risk mitigation programs and risk oversight functions are effective in managing risks. Internal Audit reports directly to the Audit and Risk Committee.

Litigations Cases

During the year 2014, the Company, the members of the Board of Commissioners, Board of Directors, SSB, and all employees of the Company were not involved in any lawsuits.
