BBVA Board Committees

Print this page

In order to better perform its duties, the BBVA Board of Directors has established five specialist Committees with a broad range of duties, to help the Board on matters falling within their remit.

The BBVA thus has an Executive Committee, an Audit & Compliance Committee, a Remuneration Committee, an Appointments Committee and a Risks Committee. Except for the Executive Committee, whose membership includes the executive directors with a majority of external directors, these are composed exclusively of external directors with a majority of independent directors.

All the Committees, except for the Executive Committee are chaired by independent directors and their operating rules are established in the Board Regulations. The Audit & Compliance and the Risks Committees each have a specific set of regulations, approved by the Board of Directors. The Board Regulations and the specific regulations of these two Committees can be consulted on the Corporate website: www.bbva.com.
