The duties and responsibilities of Directors

Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility". Directors occupy a fundamental role when it comes to the corporate world. The law establishes that directors are entrusted with the management and administration of a company. In virtue of the said trust, it also bestows extensive responsibilities upon directors.

If a company is also subject to corporate governance rules emanating from rulebooks aside from the general law, then it will also be important for directors serving on the board of such companies to ensure adherence to such rules as well. This is particularly important for listed and regulated companies.
