If shareholder only approve ned appointment and executive director give recommendation than how independence of ned will be maintain???

Recruitment sub-committee work from the outline provided by the directors in looking for new directors.
They will most probably use the services of a recruitment agency and that agency will go head-hunting
The agency will report back to the recruitment sub-committee who will, in turn, put forward nominations to the full board with their own recommendations
There should be sufficient distance between the executive board and new directors, whether they are executive or non-executive, to satisfy your enquiring mind!

are these topics still tested in exams same way because if these were uploaded for december 2010 as well , it is mentioned again and again during lecture that things will be changed after the sitting and its june 2016. This small thing is bothering me a bit

The change that happened was that the title of the exam was amended to its current “Governance, Risk and Ethics”
Of course the notes and lectures are up to date – they’re fine for June (and September, and December) 2016 exams

If there are 14 members on a board, 7 EDs and 7 NEDs. To create the sub-committees, such as the Audit, Nominations, Remuneration, Ethics, Risks and CSR Committees. Will the members consists of the 7 NEDs? Or will more NEDs have to be recruited to make up a panel on these committees?

Out of the existing 7 neds

Luke, you’re correct! However, in the best interests of transparency both separate remuneration committees will (probably) take advice / guidance from a reputable recruitment agency

Sir, who appoints the directors of a company? is it the shareholders? But in reality it is the Board of Directors and they only seek the approval of the shareholder?
Am I right as per the video lecture?
March 17, 2014 at 3:37 pm
The lecturer said the remuneration committee (in which mostly are NEDs) decide the executives’ remuneration, however what confuses me is that, as mentioned in the video, the NEDs’ remuneration is in turn decided by the executives. It seems to me that it has the same drawbacks as ‘cross directorship’?evaluating each other’s performance? I hope i am making myself clear. 😛

The board and shareholders(both) should set the remuneration of the Non Executive Directors….. only basic salary no performance related element is included…..

why formal arrangements should be in place for considering how to apply financial reporting principles??? Shouldnt the person preparing the accounts would already know these principles????
November 2, 2013 at 10:37 am
I think I’m correct in saying that within IAS / IFRS there are a number of situations where alternative treatments are allowed as distinct from the benchmark.
Surely it’s important that there is some degree of formality about which alternative should be consistently followed.
Depreciating assets over their useful life is an accounting policy. But the rate at which those assets are depreciated (straight line, reducing balance, machine hour, sum of the digits) needs to be known and formalised. And then consistently applied
It’s ok saying the preparer already knows but without the formalities of transparency and openness, if no-one else knows, how can anyone be certain that the preparer is following selected and acceptable principles
