Code of conduct and goverance principles
The Verbond van Verzekeraars, the Dutch Association of Insurance Companies, drafted Governance Principles for its membership in 2011. In the case of Nationale Borg, even though we are a cover holder rather than an insurance company, we apply the Code both in the Netherlands and in Belgium. The decisive factor in regard to the proper functioning of the Code is not the extent to which there is compliance with the letter of the Code, but the way in which the intentions behind the Code are treated.
