Supervisory board members must be able to adequately monitor and control the company's management and actively support the company's development. This requires wide-ranging business and strategic skills.“

Onboarding für Aufsichts- &

As a member of the supervisory board of a financial services provider or insurance company, you have to meet the supervisory authorities’ extensive requirements regarding skills and expertise. You should be able to fully understand the business conducted by the company to be supervised, assess the associated risks and at the same time actively support and shape the company’s development.

This requires both extensive knowledge and experience in the areas of regulatory law, compliance, risk management, accounting, corporate management and strategy development, as well as an eye for the future development of the financial services industry as a whole.

In our crash course “Onboarding for Supervisory Board Members”, we provide you with precisely this knowledge and make you fit for taking on the responsible position of a supervisory board member at insurers and financial service providers in just two days. At the end of this crash course, you will receive a certificate of completion to help you prove your skills to the supervisory authorities.
