The Policies have been implemented by instructions, established by the CEO.

To ensure a sound governance system, Avarda has organized itself in accordance with the three lines of defence model, which structures roles, responsibilities and accountabilities for decision-making and risk management.

The first line of defence is the daily risk management and control and consists of Avardas business units. The first line of defence ensures processes and procedures to identify, assess, manage, control and report risks.

The second line of defence consists of the independent risk control function and the compliance function. These functions monitor and review Avardas risk management system and its compliance to external and internal rules. The functions develop and maintain risk management practices and identify and monitor new and emerging risks. The second line of defence reports to the CEO and the Board of Directors.

The third line of defence is the independent audit function. Internal Audit provides fully independent reviews and controls of both the first and second lines. The third line of defence ensures effective enterprise risk management practices and reports to the Board of Directors.

The Board of Avarda has established a remuneration policy, in accordance with the principles in the Banking and Financing Business Act (SFS 2004:297) and the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority's Regulations (FFFS 2011:1) and the EBA Guidelines EBA/GL/2021/04 on sound remuneration policies.
